For a great while of my CP career I had no idea how such, at a first glance, insignificant things might affect the runtime of the code. And till this day I keep seeing many beginners having lack of knowledge about this so-called effect, that's why I would like to share it here and hope it'll help you out someday.
Notice 2 drastically different runtimes (6x difference!). The reason for that is pretty straightforward: in this code one of three IF statements (IF statement with == 2) gets a true response way more often than others. While the first code has an IF statement with 2 at the end, the second code has such IF statement at the beginning.
Knowing this we can make a conclusion: the order of IF statements matters, and sometimes matters a lot (you get AC or TLE). So whenever you hit (or feel you might hit) the bound of the time limit you always want to check whether all IF statements are placed in the right order and if not — a little change might make you happier by seeing this lovely green Accepted word.
upd. As Apachee mentioned in the comments if you wish to avoid thinking where it is better to put one or another IF statement you can use switch-case method which helps to achieve the same runtime as the second code 165019894.
