Hello everyone!!!

I have given a couple of contests on Codeforces till now. I am able to do the first 2 problems in a **Div-2** contest , hence get a rank of about **6-7k** . I am sure if solve them quickly and don't loose points on wrong submissions , I could reach **4-5k** easily. But to get a better rank I need to solve C & D.

Can any please advice or share some tips/tricks about how to solve C & D problems in **Div-2** contests? The problem is that on reading the editorial, I find the problems quite easy and I am able to implement them on my own(mostly). But during the contest , I don't get the idea about how should I approach them. Mainly they are of constructive algorithm types but some(D mainly) contains DP & graphs.

Should I simply start solving from the Codeforces problem set by setting the difficulty level 1400-1700 or there is something else that I should do ?

**Thanks in advance** :)

I have similar problem :(

U have given only 2 contests and solved only 5 problems. what do u expect?! just keep practicing

Step 1Select a problem

Step 2Try to solve it

Step 3Didnt' solve? Read the first sentence of editorial.

Step 4Keep reading one sentence until you get the solution.

So many are facing the same problem. Same here.
