CAN ANY ONE HELP ME WITH THIS PROBLEM?

There are N people in a country and everyone needs to be given two doses of covid vaccination. The government provided two arrays X and Y, of length M.

*Xi denotes that exactly Xi people should be vaccinated with the first dose on the ith day of vaccination
*Yi denotes that no more than Yi people should be vaccinated with the second dose on the ith day


It is given that if a person is vaccinated with the first dose on a jth day, then the second dose should be on day j or later.

Find the total no of ways in which government can assign day of two doses to each of the n people such that all the people are vaccinated in M days. Since the answer can be very large, return it modulo 10^9+7.

Note: It is given that the sum of all Xi is equal to N. Also it is guaranteed that Xi<=Yi

1<=N<=1000 1<=M<=100 0<=Xi<=100 0<=Yi<=100

Example: N 3 M 2 X-> 1,2 Y-> 2,2

OUTPUT=3

Let n be an integer. Consider all permutations on integers 1 to n in lexicographic order, and concatenate them into one big sequence p. For example, if n=3, then p=[1,2,3,1,3,2,2,1,3,2,3,1,3,1,2,3,2,1] . You are given n. Find the number of subarrays of p of length n having sum n(n+1)2. Since this number may be large, output it modulo 998244353 problem link

Q — there is a N*N square matrix cosisting of three char A,B and C … how many pairs of cells can we select so that if that pair of cells is removed from the sqaure matrix and then it is possible to cover the remaining portion(all remaining cells) of square by 1 X 2 tiles constrain — 1≤N≤1000 problem link —
