Im getting TLE. How can i optimize my code
link for the question: https://www.codechef.com/COOK26/problems/CARVANS

Please either format your code or (better!) link to your submission - the forum software has mangled it and it won’t compile! :slight_smile:

Edit:

int a[5000]

N can be up to 10000.

Edit2:

if(a[i]<a[i-1])

When this is called, i == n, so even if a has space for 10000 elements, this would still be an out-of-bounds access when N=10000.

Any ideas how to optimize for n=10000.
Please help me out as I’m a beginner
Thankyou
