##### Submissions: 1176   Accuracy: 45.4%   Difficulty: Medium   Marks: 4

Given an array, we need to modify values of this array in such a way that sum of absolute differences between two consecutive elements is maximized. If the value of an array element is X, then we can change it to either 1 or X.

Input:

The first line of input contains an integer T denoting the number of test cases. Then T test cases follow. The first line of each test case contains an integer N denoting the size of the array A.

The second line of each test case contains N space separated integers denoting elements of the array A[ ].

Output:

Print the maximum sum of adjacent differences after modifying the array for each test case in a new line.

Constraints:

1<= T <=100

1<= N <=100000

1<= A[ ] <=100000

Example:

Input:

1

5

3 2 1 4 5

Output:

8

Explanation:

Modified array: 3 1 1 4 1

ans = | 1 - 3 | + | 1 - 1 | + | 4 - 1 | + | 1 - 4 | = 8
