Compiler and parsers

Should the sequence always begin with “<”
Is the answer to the input ><> 0 or 2?

I wish i could help you but its an ongoing contest. Just a small hint - Give stress on the word “Valid & Longest Prefix”. Combine both and you’ll solve it. :slight_smile:

Read the statement again, It is no where mentioned that expression will always begin with ‘<’
