My Solution :

#!/usr/bin/env python3

def cost(B):
    s1, s2 = 0, 0
    for i in range(len(B)-1):
        ns1 = max(s1, s2 + abs(1 - B[i]))
        ns2 = max(s1 + abs(B[i+1] - 1), s2 + abs(B[i+1] - B[i]))
        s1, s2 = ns1, ns2
    return max(s1, s2)


t = int(input())
for _ in range(t):
    n = int(input())
    B = list(map(int, input().strip().split()))
    print(cost(B))
