I'm new to Codechef and my first program https://www.codechef.com/submit/TEST is showing NZEC . Although, it runs perfectly fine in my pc's java workspace. Here's the code. Do please point out my mistakes

/* package codechef; // don’t place package name! */

import java.util.;
import java.lang.
import java.io.*;

/* Name of the class has to be “Main” only if the class is public. */
class Codechef
public static void main (String[] args) throws java.lang.Exception
BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
int n=Integer.parseInt(br.readLine());

try submitting ur code

You will find test cases in every question.
Just copy and paste the test case input in the custom input window.
And check if your code’s output matches the given test case output.
You have to write your code in such a way that it takes input in the same format as mentioned in the question.
In the screenshot you provided, I can see that you didn’t provide proper input in the custom input box. You have to type in the numbers (in this case <42) you want to input in the custom input box.

Hope this helps :smile:


Thanks a lot. it did work!
