Hey! I want an explaination for this scenario : Solution 1

Solution 2

In soltion 1 , i'm taking no. of test cases as input through cin and then ignoring the remaining line by using cin.ignore(). This results in WA. While in Solution 2 , i'm taking the no.of test cases as input using getline and then converting it into int. This gives AC. Why is that so?? thanks in advance!

Can you provide the link to your solution, both the wrong and correct.

Hi, in solution 1, the problem is not caused by cin.ignore() after taking the input t. It is caused by cin.ignore() which you wrote after getline(cin, x).
So, everytime you ignore the next character after a line, i.e. the first character of every line of input.
Hope this helps. :D
