SQL Puzzle | The User Access Control Puzzle

Puzzle Statement

Well I must say this is a very very good puzzle. This puzzle was asked to me by my friend & colleague Deepak. He came to this scenario while working on a task. In this puzzle there are only 6 columns. Its basically a tree structure. column a is a parent. Column b is children of column a and so on. Now if column b has all value 0 then for column a the output will be distinct values from column a and 0 for column b. If you have non zero value in column b for a row then for column b that non zero column value will come and in column a 0 will come. For details check sample input and expected output.

Sample Input

5 5 1 0 0 0
5 5 2 3 0 0
5 4 3 4 0 0
5 4 3 5 1 0
5 4 4 6 2 0

Expected Output

0 0 1 3,4 1,2 0
