Hey @vidyut_1 @vipin1407 @samarthtandon
I was able to solve first question completely and I got only 30 points (TLE for rest of cases ) in 2nd question even though I had solved using same approach as you all did using treeset.
Can you just tell where did I go wrong ?

static int[] GreaterEqual(int[] A, int[] X, int[] u, int[] L, int[] v){
    // Write your code here
    int[] ans = new int[X.length];
    ArrayList<ArrayList<Integer>> g= new ArrayList<>();
    ArrayList<TreeSet<Integer>> lvl = new ArrayList<>();
    for(int i=0;i<u.length+2;++i){
        g.add(new ArrayList<Integer>());
        lvl.add(new TreeSet<Integer>());
    for(int i=0;i<u.length;++i){
    LinkedList<Integer> q =new LinkedList<>();
    int md=0;
    boolean vis[]= new boolean[u.length+2];
    int[] wl= new int[u.length+2];
        int n=q.poll();
        if(vis[n]) continue;
        ArrayList<Integer> adj= g.get(n);
        for(int x:adj){
    for(int i=0;i<ans.length;++i){
        int ll=L[i]%(md+1) ;
        Integer aa=lvl.get(ll).ceiling(X[i]);
    return ans;


Hi @cis_pie,
Your code is fine. This issue is in the “System.out.println” statement. I also got TLE because of that.
I had to change to “BufferedWriter” to resolve the TLE.

Problem statments are not visible now.

So much disappointing… :frowning:
I was too much frustrated at that point because i submitted this solution in last minute.
is there anything that I can do now ? like mail them and tell them that its just fast input output ?
Can I submit same code again and then share link with them ?
Can we submit again ? I think problems are not in practice section.

I think you should mention them about this fast input output issue. The “System.out.println” code was given by them. We were supposed to complete the methods.

Problems are in the practice section :slight_smile:

yes submitted and got AC by just changing output method.

Thanks, @vidyut_1
Changed output from Sytem.out.println to printwriter.println and it magically passed :slight_smile: but I could not do that during contest.

Orginal : https://www.hackerearth.com/submission/26155174/
Changed only output method : https://www.hackerearth.com/submission/26466892/


you are welcome :slight_smile:
