Hello @admin , @vijju123
For the problem CHEFRECP in MAY COOKOFF 2020. I submitted 2 similar codes, one in PYPY3 and one in Python3.6.
The PYPY3 submission gave me TLE while Python 3.6 submission gave me an AC.
The PYPY3 submission : https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/33287341
The Python3.6 submission : CodeChef: Practical coding for everyone
The only difference is in line 62 where I created a list of size 1007 in PYPY3 submission. Since the number of testcases were 100, it should work fine, because in the Python3.6 submission, I also created other lists of size 1007 and it gave AC.
So I don’t think that creating one more array of the same size should give me a TLE.
Please do look into this matter, may be there was a bug. Please, this cost me a penalty.
UDP : I submitted the same PYPY3 code in practice https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/33343952. It got AC. Wow, anything wrong with the Testing System or the servers ? Same code, during contest it is giving TLE, other time it is giving AC. And also cost me an impractical penalty.
