Suppose we have a list of numbers called nums, we have to find the maximum length of a contiguous strictly increasing sublist when we can remove one or zero elements from the list.

So, if the input is like nums = [30, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18, 17, 32], then the output will be 7, as when we remove 18 in the list we can get [11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 32] which is the longest, contiguous, strictly increasing sublist, and its length is 7.

To solve this, we will follow these steps−

n := size of nums

pre := a list of size n and fill with 1s

for i in range 1 to n - 1, do

if nums[i] > nums[i - 1], then

pre[i] := pre[i - 1] + 1

suff := a list of size n and fill with 1s

for i in range n - 2 to -1, decrease by 1, do

if nums[i] < nums[i + 1], then

suff[i] := suff[i + 1] + 1

ans := maximum value of maximum of pre and maximum of suff

for i in range 1 to n - 1, do

if nums[i - 1] < nums[i + 1], then

ans := maximum of ans and (pre[i - 1] + suff[i + 1])

return ans

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

class Solution: def solve(self, nums): n = len(nums) pre = [1] * n for i in range(1, n - 1): if nums[i] > nums[i - 1]: pre[i] = pre[i - 1] + 1 suff = [1] * n for i in range(n - 2, -1, -1): if nums[i] < nums[i + 1]: suff[i] = suff[i + 1] + 1 ans = max(max(pre), max(suff)) for i in range(1, n - 1): if nums[i - 1] < nums[i + 1]: ans = max(ans, pre[i - 1] + suff[i + 1]) return ans ob = Solution() nums = [30, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18, 17, 32] print(ob.solve(nums))

[30, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18, 17, 32]
