Using public code

can I use a simple function code available on GeeksforGeeks publicly in a contest…
Please tell fast.


I think @admin should tell us whether its ok or not.

please tell @admin and everyone who knows … ASAP

This might help:

the code was publicly available before the contest on a tutorials website but I forgot to provide link to website as a comment in the code.

Should I submit again?

If your code gets caught in plagiarism because of the public code.
Then just mail it to admin because that is a case of false positive as the code was on a public forum or a well known problem so that is totally fine.
