could you share the link to question and solution once again

Problem: PROXYC Problem - CodeChef
Solution: CodeChef: Practical coding for everyone

You can provide a proxy only if Chef is absent, which you didn’t check in if condition.
You are modifying s[i]=‘P’ on successful proxy but the question states that Chef needs to be physically present in class when checking if s[i-1] or s[i-2] == ‘P’ and s[i+1] or s[i+2]==‘P’.

Modified your code and it works fine now: CodeChef: Practical coding for everyone
