-----provide the same code that you submitted

Timely reminder to please either format your code or (better!) link to your submission - the forum software has mangled it and it won’t compile! :slight_smile:

is one of the reasons your code isn’t working, change j=2(n-i) to j=2*(n-i).
Also import java.util. doesn’t make any sense, I guess you meant import java.util.*, if you check the compiler errors, the compiler says <identifier> expected.

Format your code, otherwise there will be a lot more comments like the 2nd one or the 4th one.

Well , I think there had some issues while copying the code …

Here’s my code : https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/48358531

Clicking on this link says Access denied! You don't have permissions for this page. but any who my previous answer almost says all the changes to be made, now I can’t see your solution since you removed it, the last thing I saw was that your whole code was basically a comment, you forgot to do */ after /* Name of the class has to be “Main” only if the class is public. /
Also your code contains a lot of different Unicode characters that look almost the same, seems like a prank.
Well if you’re not really trying to prank us, rewriting the code will be better in my opinion.

I am a newbie in codechef … how do i share my submission ? why would I even prank…

I didn’t say that you were trying to prank, I said it seems like a prank, but anyways, I don’t think you can share share the solution link, the view buttons on the solutions are greyed out.

My code is alright …there’s some problem in spaces or something , thats the reason they cant evaluate properly … [I just started doing codechef 2 days back ,so do excuse me I’m a noob]

Okay, I guess, but to me that doesn’t seem to be the problem though.

guys I appreciate everybody’s help. I would like you guys I have found my error. Thanks everyone :smiley:

yeah … it was mangled by the forum software. But i found my mistake … and its solved
