How is the last output -1? Shouldn't it be 9?

Here I represented the loss with negative number.

For the last case the vector is sorted in descending order. So there is no way user will make any profit. The minimum loss is 1 (i.e. buy the item at price 5 and sell it at price 4).

Remember you have to buy the item first and then sell it.
