<h1>PROBLEM:</h1>
<p>The problem is to calculate the optimal scores and check if the two persons have similar scores.</p>
<h1>EXPLANATION:</h1>
<p>The order of covering the points is already defined, the problem just reduces to figuring out the way to calculate the scores between 2 points (A, B) and (C, D).</p>
<p>Note that what only matters is X = abs(A-C) and Y = abs(B-D).</p>
<p>While X and Y are positive, you will move along the diagonal and X and Y would both reduce by 1.
When one of them becomes 0, you would move so that in each step the remaining number reduces by 1.</p>
<p>In other words, the total number of steps would correspond to max(X, Y).</p>
<p>Then we have to sort the scores of both and then compare it.</p>
