The complexity is O(n^2/2*logN) considering that N is up to 5000 the complexity would be 10^8*1.5 which is enough for 1 second. I also do simple operations like addition and subtraction.

Hello Codeforces I tried submitting my code for the problem A1. Gardener and the Capybaras (easy version) in the contest:Codeforces Round #843 (Div 2) and it said that the output was wrong for test case 1. Heres test case 1:bbba. My output: bb b a. What the Codeforces Judge says: wrong answer Ordering constrains were violated (test case 1). I'm sure that my output satisfies this condition: b≤a and b≤c. Is there something I missed because I read the problem a couple times and cant find any thing related to why my output would be wrong.
