My C++ program for the http://www.codechef.com/JUNE14/problems/DIGJUMP ran at 1.08 seconds and got TLE.
When I looked at other people who got AC, there were a few that had execution times higher than mine (upto 2.6 seconds) but got AC. How does that work? Mind you these were C++ submissions as well, so “they submitted in a different programming language” is not valid here.
PS: Also I am wondering why does codechef not show the execution time in the “All submissions” tab for the TLE submissions? I checked the execution time in the e-mail that I received, if anybody wants to know.
