You are Welcome Mate!

Can anyone who took part previous year clear this doubt -
I submitted correct source code and correct output file for some problem and it gave AC (as expected) but when I submitted wrong source code and correct output file, it gave me AC again…then why is the source code required if only my output file is evaluated and verdict is given?

"When will I know if my solution is correct?

You will not know whether your solution is correct or not until the end of the contest. All submissions will be tentatively treated as correct on the scoreboard until the contest ends, at which point incorrect submissions will be revealed as incorrect."

Taken from here https://www.facebook.com/codingcompetitions/hacker-cup/2020

Note: I have never taken part in that competition. :slight_smile:

Okay, that is at time of competition but I submitted in practice. If you feel any solution will give AC in practice. I submitted a solution with wrong output file and it gave WA. This means verdict is only dependent on Output file and not source code. Your point doesn’t answers my query!

That ! at the end looks a bit of an attack. :slight_smile: I only wanted to help. And see, you haven’t mentioned that you were trying to submit in practice. I don’t mean any offense. I hope you understand. :slight_smile:

I’m new to this.I don’t know anything about facebook hackercup.Will it be a group one and also will we get any certificate for qualifying every round.

It is similar to any Online Coding challenge , where you are given a problem statement and related to that they provide you the input file . you have to submit the code and the output file and accordingly you will get the verdict.
If you are familiar to google codejam then it is like the same.

Sorry if that sounded rude but I thought it was kind of obvious that I was submitting in practice because no ongoing round is going on as of now.


No problem :slightly_smiling_face: . Now, I get it. Neither of us is at fault, just a case of misunderstanding. I thought that you were sharing some past experience from the contest.
