# Problem

Find the team with the maximum number of goals, or report if there is a "Draw".

# Explanation

The problem simply states to count the number of goals scored by each team and report the name of the winner team. Thus, if the first team scores $x$ goals, then the other team scores $(N - x)$ goals (because the total number of goals scored were $N$). Clearly, the winner is the one with the higher number of goals. To count the number of goals by the first team, we simply iterate through the list of team which scored the next goal and compare if it has the same name as the first team, then, we increment the counter. Now, we simply check using "If" conditions, whether the first team won or the second team won or there is a draw.

The time complexity of this approach will be the sum of length of strings in input (per test case) as each string comparison takes a total of $O(\text{length of string})$. This is the most optimal algorithm for even taking the input takes same time asymptotically.

For details, refer to the editorialist solution below.

# Time Complexity

$O(\sum_{i=1}^{i=N} |S_i|)$, per test case, where $|S|$ = length of string $S$.

# Space Complexity

$O(N)$

 0 Hello, Can anyone please explain me why my solution is getting TLE. This solution is running perfectly in my PC as well as other online IDEs but in codechef IDE it is showing TLE. My solution: Here answered 26 Dec '17, 11:04 2★antar1 1 accept rate: 0% N = 0 can also be present, in that case while loop runs will give you tle, as it runs for 2*INT_MAX iterations, after which it loops back to 0 and breaks.

 0 Can anyone explain me why it is tle My code https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/16644182 answered 28 Dec '17, 01:29 23●6 accept rate: 0% Input files are large and cin/cout are the slowest input/output streams. So, use the lines "ios_base::sync_with_stdio(false);" in your code. See editorialist submission for details.

 0 Hello: My code works on online IDE but is not getting accepted and saying it's NZEC error in Python ¿Can anybody tell me why? n1=int(input().strip()) for i in range(n1): arr=[] n2 = int(input().strip()) for j in range(n2): arr_t = str(input().strip()) arr.append(arr_t) arr_uniq=list(set(arr)) if (arr.count(arr_uniq)>arr.count(arr_uniq)): print(arr_uniq) elif (arr.count(arr_uniq)

its showing run time error?what is the error?its working well for test cases.

# include <string>

using namespace std;

int main() { int t,i,x; cin>>t; while(t--) { int count1=0,count2=0; cin>>x; string s[x]; for(i=0;i<x;i++) cin="">>s[i]; string a=s; string b; for(i=0;i<x;i++) {="" if(s[i]="=a)" count1++;="" else="" {="" b="s[i];" count2++;="" }="" }="" if(count1="">count2) cout<<a<<endl; else="" if(count2="">count1) cout<<b<<endl; else cout<<"Draw"<<endl; } return 0; }

check the logic the brackets are a bit messed up .its showing runtime error on codechef but working well on codeblocks
