### Solution :

``````#include "combo.h"
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;

string guess_sequence(int N) {
string p = "";
if(press("AB") >= 1) p = press("A") ? "A" : "B";
else p = press("X") ? "X" : "Y";
vector<char> chr = {'A', 'B', 'X', 'Y'};
chr.erase(find(chr.begin(), chr.end(), p));
while((int)p.size() <= N - 2){
int query = press(p + chr + chr + p + chr + chr + p + chr + chr);
if(query == p.size()){
p.push_back(chr);
}
else if(query == p.size() + 1){
query = press(p + chr + chr);
if(query == p.size()) p = p + chr + chr;
else if(query == p.size() + 1) p = p + chr + chr;
else p = p + chr + chr;
}
else{
query = press(p + chr + chr);
if(query == p.size()) p = p + chr + chr;
else if(query == p.size() + 1) p = p + chr + chr;
else p = p + chr + chr;
}
}
while(p.size() != N){
if(press(p + chr) == p.size() + 1) p.push_back(chr);
else if(press(p + chr) == p.size() + 1) p.push_back(chr);
else p.push_back(chr);
}
return p;
}``````
