You’re failing on this test case:

1
1 5
1 0 0 0 0

Expected output:

0

Your output:

1

Do look at your else block, I think that fixing it will be enough enough to get your AC :slight_smile:

Found your bug. There can be cases when j>o2. For that, your i in your inner loop, given i=o2+j (line 29), can exceed the total size of the array after a couple of iterations. What you can do to fix this is to do i=j%o2+o2 instead, to make sure that the first iteration is within the first range.

I tried more test cases, apparently you also have an error in your first if block. Try this test case:

1
9 3
0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 1

The correct output is 0 while your code is giving output 1. Hope you find that bug.

Oh that’s great! Just generated random input to check your program with a while loop :))
