You have to climb up a ladder. The ladder has exactly N rungs, numbered from 1 to N. With each step, you can ascend by one or two rungs. More precisely:

- with your first step you can stand on rung 1 or 2,
- if you are on rung K, you can move to rungs K + 1 or K + 2,
- finally you have to stand on rung N.

Your task is to count the number of different ways of climbing to the top of the ladder.

For example, given N = 4, you have five different ways of climbing, ascending by:

- 1, 1, 1 and 1 rung,
- 1, 1 and 2 rungs,
- 1, 2 and 1 rung,
- 2, 1 and 1 rungs, and
- 2 and 2 rungs.

Given N = 5, you have eight different ways of climbing, ascending by:

- 1, 1, 1, 1 and 1 rung,
- 1, 1, 1 and 2 rungs,
- 1, 1, 2 and 1 rung,
- 1, 2, 1 and 1 rung,
- 1, 2 and 2 rungs,
- 2, 1, 1 and 1 rungs,
- 2, 1 and 2 rungs, and
- 2, 2 and 1 rung.

The number of different ways can be very large, so it is sufficient to return the result modulo 2^{P}, for a given integer P.

Assume that the following declarations are given:

struct Results { int * C; int L; // Length of the array };

Write a function:

struct Results solution(int A[], int B[], int L);

that, given two non-empty arrays A and B of L integers, returns an array consisting of L integers specifying the consecutive answers; position I should contain the number of different ways of climbing the ladder with A[I] rungs modulo 2^{B[I]}.

For example, given L = 5 and:

the function should return the sequence [5, 1, 8, 0, 1], as explained above.

Write an ** efficient** algorithm for the following assumptions:

- L is an integer within the range [1..50,000];
- each element of array A is an integer within the range [1..L];
- each element of array B is an integer within the range [1..30].

^{B[I]}.

For example, given L = 5 and:

the function should return the sequence [5, 1, 8, 0, 1], as explained above.

Write an ** efficient** algorithm for the following assumptions:

- L is an integer within the range [1..50,000];
- each element of array A is an integer within the range [1..L];
- each element of array B is an integer within the range [1..30].

- with your first step you can stand on rung 1 or 2,
- if you are on rung K, you can move to rungs K + 1 or K + 2,
- finally you have to stand on rung N.

Your task is to count the number of different ways of climbing to the top of the ladder.

For example, given N = 4, you have five different ways of climbing, ascending by:

- 1, 1, 1 and 1 rung,
- 1, 1 and 2 rungs,
- 1, 2 and 1 rung,
- 2, 1 and 1 rungs, and
- 2 and 2 rungs.

Given N = 5, you have eight different ways of climbing, ascending by:

- 1, 1, 1, 1 and 1 rung,
- 1, 1, 1 and 2 rungs,
- 1, 1, 2 and 1 rung,
- 1, 2, 1 and 1 rung,
- 1, 2 and 2 rungs,
- 2, 1, 1 and 1 rungs,
- 2, 1 and 2 rungs, and
- 2, 2 and 1 rung.

^{P}, for a given integer P.

Write a function:

Private Function solution(A As Integer(), B As Integer()) As Integer()

^{B[I]}.

For example, given L = 5 and:

the function should return the sequence [5, 1, 8, 0, 1], as explained above.

Write an ** efficient** algorithm for the following assumptions:

- L is an integer within the range [1..50,000];
- each element of array A is an integer within the range [1..L];
- each element of array B is an integer within the range [1..30].
