Looking at the number of ACs in both the divisions, it hardly seems to have affected the ranklist.
I am not defending anybody here but mistakes do happen and if it was one google search away, i am sure we would have seen many more AC submissions.

It is necessary to report this to admin but attacking the setter like this is not fair.

Writer probably copied the problem, it is not possible that he may think of the exact problem.

Googling skills are important in codechef.
Don’t you know already @ssrivastava990

Exactly… I am not questioning about the standard of the question…it was the exactly those type of difficulty leveled question that someone would expect at cookoff but copying exactly the same question, is it fair?
