In this HackerEarth Group Range problem solution, You are given N integers. You are required to perform Q queries. In each query, you are given two integers x and y. Your task is to merge the groups that contain the xth and yth integer into a single group. After performing each query, you are required to print the range of numbers that lie in the newly-formed group. Initially, the numbers do not belong to any group.
