Maximum AND Value
Medium Accuracy: 44.82% Submissions: 23631 Points: 4

Given an array arr[] of N positive elements. The task is to find the Maximum AND Value generated by any pair(arri, arrj) from the array such that i != j.
Note: AND is bitwise '&' operator.

Example 1:

N = 4
arr[] = {4, 8, 12, 16}
Output: 8
Pair (8,12) has the Maximum AND Value 8.

Example 2:

N = 4
arr[] = {4, 8, 16, 2}
Output: 0
Explanation: Any two pairs of the array has 
Maximum AND Value 0.

Your Task: 
You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function maxAND() which takes the array elements and N (size of the array) as input parameters and returns the maximum AND value generated by any pair in the array. 

Expected Time Complexity: O(N * log M), where M is the maximum element of the array.

Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1).


1 <= N <= 105
1 <= arr[i] <= 105
