Given a string of 1’s and 2’s, standing at index ‘i’, you can move exactly two steps forward or backward if s[i] == 2, else you can move one step forward or backward if s[i] ==1. A string is called a good string if you can reach the end of the string by moving every index exactly once.

Now, you have been given two Strings A and B (not necessarily good), you have to return the number of possible sub-sequences of swaps available, such that both the strings become good.

Swap means you can swap A[i] with B[i].


A = 2211 
B = 1111 
ans = 8

Can someone please give some idea on how to solve this?
