Hope you all had fun debugging codes in our hacking challenge.

Introducing this time, Mystery Language , an event that requires you to code a contest in a language which would be announced minutes before the contest.

A Competitive Programming contest with a slight difference, submit your solutions in a language, which might be unknown to you. The language will be announced 20 minutes prior to the contest.

For some reason my last submission is not being considered on the ranklist even though it passed (and even displays that it was solved). Is the scoreboard frozen or something? As you can see 300 + 300 + 200 != 500.

I think it will get updated and congrats for rank 2!
