I learnt in this contest. Sometimes ‘Y’ is vowel. :innocent: :innocent: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Vowels

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vowel

Ideally, Problem statement should have mentioned in problem if ‘Y’ is counted as vowel…
Anyway I too got 3 WA, after hit and trail got AC.

Almost no one solved it in first attempt apart from some geniuses.

Definitely they should have mentioned it (y as a vowel). Such a cakewalk question is least solved out of all 6 !!!

You guys made problems? Lol, you literally copied every problem from GeeksforGeeks except the Goa problem, which maybe was copied from some other website.

how about collaborating with us next time we host a contest on our chapter and you being the problem setter ??

also fun fact is that none of the problems was copied from GFG :sweat_smile: your intuition to think about that proves that we did fine with the problem making part :slightly_smiling_face:

I agree you need to understand the statement to search in gfg, but can’t deny the fact that every problem was from gfg and was not at all hard to google.
Q1- https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/maximize-gcd-of-all-possible-pairs-from-1-to-n/
Q2-https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/find-the-largest-number-that-can-be-formed-by-changing-at-most-k-digits/
Q3-https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/find-position-given-number-among-numbers-made-4-7/
Q5- https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/maximum-length-substring-having-all-same-characters-after-k-changes/

well mate our focus was to make a beginner friendly contest …although it is a sheer coincidence to find such problem on gfg …but these problems doesn’t need any help to be done … although thank you for pointing this out… next time we will come back more stronger and with better problems . :blush:
