U have necessry but not sufficient knowledge.Problems on Codechef require thorough knowledge of Data structures and most importantly algorithms.,Can be a good starting platform for anyone who wants to start coding.

You may be able to crack 1 or 2 questions of Long contest which require no prerequisites and are a Cakewalk.But for most of other problems,you will have to be well practiced !

Hi @roshanletitrip,

for someone like you I can recommend USACO training resources. It's something like tutorial and you will learn easier algorithms first and more difficult later, so it's great place to start.
