Hey Everyone. I hope you're all fine.

I just got a mail regarding this issue. I found out that both of the mentioned answers are pretty much using the same logic and are structured similarly. However, I am new to Codeforces and it's my second contest. I used VSCode to write my answers in my local files and thereafter uploaded them for submission.

Being new to this platform, can anyone help me in proving that this is just an act of coincidence and not what I'm being charged for? Where do I write?

This is the content of the mail:

Your solution 191889476 for the problem 1791C significantly coincides with solutions joshi.ishaan.2001/191889476, singhal.adi/191920012. Such a coincidence is a clear rules violation. Note that unintentional leakage is also a violation. For example, do not use with the default settings (public access to your code). If you have conclusive evidence that a coincidence has occurred due to the use of a common source published before the competition, write a comment to post about the round with all the details. More information can be found at Such violation of the rules may be the reason for blocking your account or other penalties. In case of repeated violations, your account may be blocked.

Wbat shall I do as my next step? Is that just a warning? I'm being really confused after having the mail I don't know whether I should tag Mike Mirzayanov or not.

Thank you in advance for the help!
