We are going to organize a competition, but we cannot find any resources that help us to write external validator to check if the output is close enough to the expected answer. Can someone provide us some working validator files or give us some idea on how to work?

Any testlib solution will be appreciated.

basically you are required to find a maximal independent set out of a very special graph, but I cannot find any usage on the property of the graph. Can someone give hints/solutions about this problem? Million thanks!
