Hopefully you have got what his isGood function is doing if not then;
int r=mid;
now he is creating a new map and puting elements from r to m .
he is iterating from r=mid to m and keep on removing the rth item and adding the left item from index zero to make sure he has the map size of binary search answer.
if now map size is n then he is sure that removing mid no. of elements are giving the result. Now he is going to search for the minimum answer .

hello, can anyone help me to find what wrong here? Solution: 47314260 | CodeChef

Can you tell me why both below codes are different .
one is AC and second is WA (for 1 test cases);

Code1(AC) : Solution: 47321454 | CodeChef
Code2(WA): Solution: 47321808 | CodeChef

Wrong:

if(!s.empty())
{
Min=s.begin();
Max=
(s.rbegin());
l=Max-Min+1;
}

Right:

if(!s.empty())
{
Min=(s.begin());
// Max=
(s.rbegin());
l=m-Min;
}

Why we can’t use *(s.rbegin()) for finding max-elemnt frpm set? I also checked on gfg it is correct: Find Maximum and Minimum element in a Set in C++ STL - GeeksforGeeks .
Please help me

Thanks

your AC code gives: 5
your wrong code gives: 4

this is so because you are required to pop all the elements from the last till minimum index in the set. But doing s.rbegin() indicates that you are popping elements in the range max to min. where max is not necessarily the last index of given array.

I hope its clear.
