I am getting wrong answer according to the logic implemented below.

For k=2 there will be 100 signs indexing from 0 to 99. We have to find out i and 10^k - i - 1 such that i and 10^k - i - 1 have two distinct digits. So the digits are

0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

All 10 digits from 0 to 9.Therefore count= 10.

i 10^k - i - 1

11 88

18 81

22 77

27 72

33 66

44 55

45 54

so the count is 26 but according to editorial the ans of count is 20

How is it possible?

Sorry, It won’t happen again.
