## Problem Statement

#### For example:

``````ARR = [1,2,3,4]
Minimums of window size 1 = min(1), min(2), min(3), min(4) = 1,2,3,4
Maximum among (1,2,3,4)  is 4

Minimums of window size 2 = min(1,2), min(2,3),   min(3,4) = 1,2,3
Maximum among (1,2,3) is 3

Minimums of window size 3 = min(1,2,3), min(2,3,4) = 1,2
Maximum among (1,2) is 2

Minimums of window size 4 = min(1,2,3,4) = 1
Maximum among them is 1
The output array should be [4,3,2,1].

##### Explanation for sample input 1:
``````Test case 1:

Test case 2:
Minimums of window size 1 = min(3), min(3), min(4), min(2), min(4) = 3, 3, 4, 2, 4
Maximum among (3, 3, 4, 2, 4) is 4

Minimums of window size 2 = min(3,3), min(3,4), min(4,2), min(2,4) = 3, 3, 2, 2
Maximum among (3, 3, 2, 2) is 3

Minimums of window size 3 = min(3,3,4), min(3,4,2), min(4,2,4) = 3, 2, 2
Maximum among (3, 2, 2) is 3

Minimums of window size 4 = min(3,3,4,2), min(3,4,2,4) = 2, 2
Maximum among (2, 2) is 2

Minimums of window size 4 = min(3,3,4,2,4) = 2
Maximum among them is 2
The output array should be [4,3,3,2,2].
