I solved the problem STDYTAB of June Long Challenge 2015 in python as well as in C++ with the same logic. The solution in C++ got AC, but the same in python got TLE for some tasks in the last sub-task. You can check out the solutions:
Now, my point is, is the time limit for python[currently 5x] still a bit more strict? or this case is an example that supports the fact that we cannot find an exactly equivalent time limit for a language with respect to another one.
Note: I am neither a pro at coding in C++ nor a pro at coding in python. I think the fact that every variable in python should be initialized first(at least with None) makes it slower further, specially when it comes to declaring a list of a fixed length beforehand to be able to assign value at any arbitrary index. Any suggestion to optimize the code is welcome.
