Given a sequence of positive integers of length , we define a primed subsequence as a consecutive subsequence of length at least two that sums to a prime number greater than or equal to two.

For example, given the sequence:

3 5 6 3 8

There are two primed subsequences of length ( and ), one primed subsequence of length (), and one primed subsequence of length ().

#### Input Specification

Input consists of a series of test cases. The first line consists of an integer , the number of test cases.

Each test case consists of one line. The line begins with the integer , , followed by positive numbers less than or equal to comprising the sequence.

You should note that in test cases worth of the points, there will be at most numbers in the sequence.

#### Output Specification

For each sequence, print Shortest primed subsequence is length x:, where is the length of the shortest primed subsequence, followed by the shortest primed subsequence, separated by spaces. If there are multiple such sequences, print the one that occurs first. If there are no such sequences, print This sequence is anti-primed..

#### Sample Input

3
5 3 5 6 3 8
5 6 4 5 4 12
21 15 17 16 32 28 22 26 30 34 29 31 20 24 18 33 35 25 27 23 19 21

#### Sample Output

Shortest primed subsequence is length 2: 5 6
Shortest primed subsequence is length 3: 4 5 4
This sequence is anti-primed.

What does "80% of the test cases" mean in this context? Is it that in each test, there are at most 4 sequences with length more than 1000, or is it that 40/50 points are achievable for solutions that work for .

The latter. A solution that can consistently solve is expected to score 40/50 points.

The statement has been updated to clarify this.

Since the original data were weak, an additional test case was added, and all submissions were rejudged.
