Problem of the day

You are given an array/list of ‘N’ integers. You are supposed to return the maximum sum of the subsequence with the constraint that no two elements are adjacent in the given array/list.

```
A subsequence of an array/list is obtained by deleting some number of elements (can be zero) from the array/list, leaving the remaining elements in their original order.
```

Detailed explanation

```
1 <= T <= 500
1 <= N <= 1000
0 <= ARR[i] <= 10^5
Where 'ARR[i]' denotes the 'i-th' element in the array/list.
Time Limit: 1 sec.
```

```

3
1 2 4
4
2 1 4 9
```

```
5
11
```

```
In test case 1, the sum of 'ARR[0]' & 'ARR[2]' is 5 which is greater than 'ARR[1]' which is 2 so the answer is 5.
In test case 2, the sum of 'ARR[0]' and 'ARR[2]' is 6, the sum of 'ARR[1]' and 'ARR[3]' is 10, and the sum of 'ARR[0]' and 'ARR[3]' is 11. So if we take the sum of 'ARR[0]' and 'ARR[3]', it will give the maximum sum of sequence in which no elements are adjacent in the given array/list.

1 2 3 5 4

1 2 3 1 3 5 8 1 9
```

```
8
24
```

```
In test case 1, out of all the possibilities, if we take the sum of 'ARR[0]', 'ARR[2]' and 'ARR[4]', i.e. 8, it will give the maximum sum of sequence in which no elements are adjacent in the given array/list.
In test case 2, out of all the possibilities, if we take the sum of 'ARR[0]', 'ARR[2]', 'ARR[4]', 'ARR[6]' and 'ARR[8]', i.e. 24 so, it will give the maximum sum of sequence in which no elements are adjacent in the given array/list.
