Please help me in SPOONS

https://www.codechef.com/problems/SPOON <–question

I have used straight forward approach- check rows then column. any idea?

Note that in your code in Line 14, j[0+i:6+i] is a list of length 6 (5 when i==col-5). If a spoon is in the middle of a row, for instance, this case:

sspoonn

Your code can’t find the spoon. To avoid it, simply change j[0+i:6+i] to j[0+i:5+i] and you will get Accepted.

Your Code: https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/17406291

Accepted Code: https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/17651706

The only difference between these two codes are mentioned above.

Can you share the link of your solution on codechef? ideone is giving me problems in opening. Also, the word must be contiguous, make sure you are checking that thing.
