Note: The chess board consists of rows numbered (1 to N) and columns (1 to M).

The first line of input contains an integer T denoting the number of testcases. Then T test cases follow. Each test case contains two lines. The first line of each testcase contains two space separated integers N and M. Then in the next line are four space separated values s1, s2 and d1, d2.

For each testcase in a new line print the minimum number of moves required by the knight to go to the destination from the source. If no such move is possible print -1.

1 <= T <= 100
1 <= N, M <= 25
