    Default Bleak number

    —>Bleak Numbers
    In Mathematics each number has one special number, which it supports, chosen as follows. It counts the number of ones in its own binary representation, and adds this count to itself to obtain the value of the number it supports. That is, if j(m) means the number of ones in the binary representation of m, then m supports m+j(m). For example, the number eight (1000 in binary) supports nine, whereas nine supports eleven.
    However, in this way not all the numbers get supported; some are left without support, and we call these numbers bleak. For example since one supports two, two supports three and three supports five, there is no number less than four, which would support four, so four is bleak.

    Your task is for a given number recognize if it is bleak or supported by some number.

    Input

    First integer containing the number of test cases, followed by the number to be checked.

    Output

    For every checked number n write one line containing the word BLEAK if n is bleak or the word SUPPORTED if given n there exists m such that n=m+j(m). In case of wrong input print -999

    We dont give you code, but we will help you write it by yourself.
    Its best if you show us what you have gotten so far, and write down your thought process and what you have planned. We can then commentate on your code and guide you in the right direction.

    As a small hint - learn about binary notation and how binary is expressed.
    i.e: each binary digit is either a 1 or a zero - they can be translated into digits
    or characters. But agreed with above - we need to see working code from you
    before we can help further.
