Hello again, It’s Arpa as usual :P. Hope you enjoyed from the Gym, and it’s here is the editorial.

Problem packages are available here. Solutions are available here separately.

## Preparation details:

The problems authored by me when the main contest was authoring. Here is a table, showing the percentage of expected accepts (in my opinion, before the contest) and the number of accepts.

A | B | C | D | |

Expected | 100% | 30% | 70% | 10% |

Accepted | 27 | 0 | 8 | 0 |

## Difference from main problems

**A** : *n* is bigger, binary_pow will not work. You need to calculate in a faster way.

**B** : *n* and also numbers are much bigger, simple xor will not work.

**C** : *n* is bigger, simple LCM will not work because the answer would become really large.

**D** : Number of alphabets are 26 instead of 22, so it isn’t possible to allocate an array with size 2^{z} (*z* = 26).

## Hints

**A** : Write the last digit of 1378^{n} for several small values. Calculate in a fast way.

**B** : Note that if then . Use trie.

**C** : If the answer exists, it depends on the lengths of cycles in the functional graph. Factorize numbers and calculate LCM.

**D** : Keep a mask for each vertex, *i*-th bit of *mask*_{v} is *true* if the number of edges in the path from the root to *v* such that letter *i* is written on them is odd. Now if number of bits in is 0 or 1, path between *v* and *u* is Dokhtar-kosh. Give an id to each mask.

## Details

First accepts: A : retired_coder, C : wrinx.

Funniest code : hrzuser ’s code : 23229169. He was managing to get accepted in problem C, with a solution :O.

## Solutions

I’d like to finish the editorial with the below poem by Saadi Shirazi:

Translation: No one knows the value of good friend as I know, fish will know the value of water when it falls on the beach.

Goodbye ; )

Actually there was not defference between easy A and hard A because everyone solved them by the same way

Well the base concept is the exact same but calculating the mod is different.

What is the difference between this D and it's easier version?
