A DNA sequence can be represented as a string consisting of the letters A, C, G and T, which correspond to the types of successive nucleotides in the sequence. Each nucleotide has an impact factor, which is an integer. Nucleotides of types A, C, G and T have impact factors of 1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively. You are going to answer several queries of the form: What is the minimal impact factor of nucleotides contained in a particular part of the given DNA sequence?

The DNA sequence is given as a non-empty string S = S[0]S[1]...S[N-1] consisting of N characters. There are M queries, which are given in non-empty arrays P and Q, each consisting of M integers. The K-th query (0 ≤ K < M) requires you to find the minimal impact factor of nucleotides contained in the DNA sequence between positions P[K] and QK.

For example, consider string S = CAGCCTA and arrays P, Q such that:

```
P[0] = 2 Q[0] = 4
P[1] = 5 Q[1] = 5
P[2] = 0 Q[2] = 6
```

The answers to these M = 3 queries are as follows:

The part of the DNA between positions 2 and 4 contains nucleotides G and C (twice), whose impact factors are 3 and 2 respectively, so the answer is 2.

The part between positions 5 and 5 contains a single nucleotide T, whose impact factor is 4, so the answer is 4.

The part between positions 0 and 6 (the whole string) contains all nucleotides, in particular nucleotide A whose impact factor is 1, so the answer is 1.

Write a function:

class Solution { public int[] solution(String S, int[] P, int[] Q); }

that, given a non-empty string S consisting of N characters and two non-empty arrays P and Q consisting of M integers, returns an array consisting of M integers specifying the consecutive answers to all queries.

Result array should be returned as an array of integers.

For example, given the string S = CAGCCTA and arrays P, Q such that:

```
P[0] = 2 Q[0] = 4
P[1] = 5 Q[1] = 5
P[2] = 0 Q[2] = 6
```

the function should return the values [2, 4, 1], as explained above.

Write an efficient algorithm for the following assumptions:

N is an integer within the range [1..100,000];

M is an integer within the range [1..50,000];

each element of arrays P and Q is an integer within the range [0..N - 1];

P[K] ≤ Q[K], where 0 ≤ K < M;

string S consists only of upper-case English letters A, C, G, T.
