And even doing so will result in TLE.for(int i=0;i> srt >> en; mi=min(mi,srt); mx=max(mx,en); for(int i=srt;i<=en;i++){ arr[i]++; } }Also u are putting 2 instead of k.for(int i=mi;i<=mx;i++){ if(arr[i]>=2)ans[i]=++c; else ans[i]=c; }
 » In this line: if(arr[i]>=2)ans[i]=++c; I think you mean to put k instead of 2. Also your algorithm is O(n^2) due to this part: for(int i=0;i> srt >> en; mi=min(mi,srt); mx=max(mx,en); for(int i=srt;i<=en;i++){ arr[i]++; } } But you can easily improve it to $O(n)$ by using a difference array.
