Codes: here and here (code not rly relevant, if you can't see it). Why did I not get a RE with the assert and got a wrong answer instead? The problem being interactive changes anything in this case?

University of Sao Paulo (Campus Sao Carlos) holds a qualifier contest every year to select participants that will represent our university on the ACM-ICPC Brazilian Sub Regionals.

This year, the contest will take place on August 19th at 14:00 BRT. The contest is public and everyone is welcome to participate on Codeforces Gym.

This year problem setters are bimaoe, danft, ffao, LaercioJr, Seku, tomasf, and me (teochaban). We would like to thank joaogui1, andre_smaira and overnite.runner for helping us out with testing and reviewing.

Here are our contests from past years:
