How can someone do such huge mistake ?
I wonder if codechef have any tester or statement verifier :expressionless:
How can they forget 0 !!!
I wasted an hour finding the mistake and still couldn’t find it because after looking at first image having all display off I though 0 means everything turned off.
I lost a lot of time doing this question and couldn’t find the mistake thinking that 0 means displaying nothing…
Saw announcement later on
I have been participating on codechef in every contest since December 2017
This was the worst experience ever.
