    If they follow a parallel structure of the contests, there should be 8 problems, as many as in the qualification round.

This was an ideal contest ..

Nice and clear problem statement , no problems in server , good compilation of problems and above all extremely fast system test.

Btw , why dont they use such system testing in normal rounds ?

    System test is faster because the number of participants is low.

    Python's interpreter also agrees with ya

    "a56f:00d3:0000:0124:0001:f19a:1000:0000"=="a56f:00d3:0000:0124:0001:f19a:10 00:0000" True

      You print something like '\0', such symbols are not shown in web pages, but your program really outputs them.

        You output '\0' or something in printf("%c", s[k]). j can be equal to s.length(), and k can be equal to j.

        edit: oops I didn't notice your blog post

    It's a case like "::a56f:d3:0:0124:01:f19a:1000" or "a56f:d3:0:0124:01:f19a:1000::"

          yes you're right, it's WA but not TLE ! I modify my code and now it's true but again TLE.

          (there are about 50 submissions for this problem with Time Limit error)

      It can be say Wrong Answer in worst case, but "TLE" doesn't make any sense at all for this problem !

        Try to debug your program with that test case and see on which line your program loops in an infinite cycle.

Problem D should have had more points, as of this moment C solved by 467 persons where as D is solved by 150 people.

Dynamic score distribution may have been a better option.

Can anyone tell me how to solve Div 2 Problem C. ???

    First, you should minimize the sequence and eliminate the consecutive duplicates. e.g. For Sample 1, change

    1 1 2 3 2 3 3 1 1 3

    to

    1 2 3 2 3 1 3

    This can be done in O(n)

    Then for each number, if the two numbers beside it is the same, then excluding this number will get 2 fewer stress; otherwise, there will be only 1 fewer stress.

    For the first one and the last one, excluding these two numbers will always get 1 fewer stress.

    So excluding 1 will get 3 fewer stress;

    excluding 2 will get 3 fewer stress;

    excluding 3 will get 4 fewer stress.

    This can be done in O(n) again.

    Since excluding 3 can get more fewer stress, answer is 3.

    Also remember that the genres are 1-index based, while you are likely dealing with 0-based array indices.
