I need some help in this problem. I think that my approach is correct, but I am getting WA unfortunately. Please do help..

Here's the link to the question: http://www.spoj.com/problems/CATM/

My approach is as follows :

1. If the mouse is at the edge of the field,i.e., if its x-co-ordinate=1 or n and if its y-co-ordinate=1 or m, then it can escape.

2. If both the cats and the mouse lie in a diagonal(either left diagonal or right diagonal) with the mouse in the middle, then the mouse can't escape.

3. For any other condition, the mouse can escape.

Hey, can anyone please tell as to where I am going wrong ? Here's the problem link : http://www.spoj.com/problems/PHONELST/

I am getting Runtime Error.. Am I doing anything wrong in the deletion part, wherein I am trying to delete the entire trie ? I am even getting Runtime Error for the 2nd sample input..

EDIT : My code seems to work for only a single test case, not for multiple test cases..

I am stuck in this SPOJ question. Can anyone please point out as to where I am going wrong ? I am not even getting the sample test cases correct..

Here's the link to the question :

And here's my solution for it. I am using BFS to detect the level of the nodes(I am pushing -1 into the queue after completion of each level & -1 here detects the completion of a level), but unfortunately not getting the correct answer.

I have been trying out this two-pointers question for a very long time. http://www.spoj.com/problems/KOIREP/ But I haven't been able to implement it. I referred to the following Topcoder thread : http://apps.topcoder.com/forums/;jsessionid=85746DDEA3A3E514D06E169F530987BD?module=Thread&threadID=760646&start=0&mc=5#1598832

But my main problem is that I haven't been able to implement it. Can anyone please help me with this 1 ?
