In the problem Rectangular Area -
assume 1 = “*” below 3 3 as codechef is not displaying star
The expected outcome of test case-
is 1 when it actually should be 9 because the problem asks for maximum connected occupied area. Now just 5 min after the contest when I uncommented the part of code where it checks for connected area when no unoccupied area is present it got A.C . This is just unfair beyond words also it has such a low accuracy as most codes failed on this case. The problem statement is also so ambiguous. Because of this many users didn’t get the rank they deserved including me. It cannot end like this , geeksforgeeks should either remove this problem or rejudge all the solutions . Such things are not expected from a site like geeksforgeeks.
