Let A = (A1, A2, A3,.....Ai) be defined as a sequence containing positive and negative integer numbers. A substring is defined as (An, An+1,.....Am) where 1 <= n < m <= i. Now, the weight of the substring is the sum of all its elements. Showing your algorithms and proper working: 1) Does there exist a substring with no weight or zero weight? 2) Please list the substring which contains the maximum weight found in the sequence.

. For any integer n ≥ 2, let A(n) denote the number of ways to fully parenthesize a sum of n terms such as a1 + · · · + an. Examples: • A(2) = 1, since the only way to fully parenthesize a1 + a2 is (a1 + a2). • A(3) = 2, since the only ways to fully parenthesize a1 + a2 + a3 are ((a1 + a2) + a3) and (a1 + (a2 + a3)). • A(4)...
