Nice Contest, Where we can find the rank list of Div1??

When will ratings be updated ?

Can someone help me find error in this code for second question “PAINT THE WALL”…or just provide some corner test cases

My approach:

  1. store for each height …the color and time

  2. then sort the height and remove duplicates…

  3. then iterate from largest to smallest and increment ans if time is more and color is different …

They will publish it soon. The @admins might be asleep right now and I dont wanna disturb them :3… so need to wait until tomorrow.

“Soon.” We are waiting until tomorrow to analyze how many people in div2 might be affected due to Uptree problem issue by submissions or received mails. If its too many, we have to decide what to do next.

when you sort the heights you are missing the order.
if the order is lost you don’t know which color is on the top and which color is hidden

have they published?

@vivek_1998299 You’re probably 13th-14th considering all those penalties XP

The ratings on the graph have been updated but the current rating has not changed

I received no reply yet. I will publish their short solutions shared with me.

It will, soon.
