Problem statement

Anish is given a string S and has been asked to determine if the given string S contains two non-overlapping substrings "AB" and "BA" (the substrings can go in any order).

As a friend of Anish, your task is to return “True” if the string S contains two non-overlapping substrings "AB" and "BA" (the substrings can go in any order) otherwise return “False” (without quotes).

Example:-
The string “ABBA” has two non-overlapping substrings “AB” and “BA” respectively. So “True” will be printed(without quotes).
