hello everyone, its been almost one year i have been practicing and participating in a lot of competitions here as well as in codeforces. But problem with me is sometimes i am able to do 4 or 5 questions in long challenge and almost 2 or 3 in cookoff but sometimes i am only able to solve 2 or 3 question in long challenge. I feel like that i take a lot of time thinking hard for a problem and way for approaching it. Everyday i spend almost 6 to 7 hours practicing competitive programming here as well as in codeforces most of the time. But when i participate in competitions specially in codeforces i am only able to solve first 2 questions.
What things i can do more to improve my problem solving skill. Your help would mean a lot to me. Share your experience and if you have suggestions to me about the techniques and guidance i can use to improve my problem solving skill all are welcomed and it would mean a lot to me.
