I have several questions :)

How to solve problem #3? What was the problem with testcases to problem #1? Why don't you fix this during contest? Will you discard submissions to problem #2, which were made before you fixed input format in statement?

    Hey pal, I set the problem #3. I can share the solution:

    https://ideone.com/j06NN7.

    In #1, I forgot to decrement the pos in the update function, considered 0-based indexing.

    the #2 was a human error, which we corrected when we encountered it.

        No, I don't think we can discard the submissions which were made before the sample testcase was changed. The inconvenience caused is regretted.

            Yeah, it was just a human error, we would try not to repeat any errors in our future contests. Thank you for your participation though it was really appreciated.

    I commented, are you sure that the test data is correct and they suddenly removed the problem while i thought they will fix it soon. I submitted that problem in 25 minutes and next 15 minutes i was debugging my code if it has some bugs and unfortunately they just removed it.
