Your perception of the difficulties was not exactly spot on...

      My experience was relatively fine since I did Div1D (Defeating Monsters) first, but Div2 people must be far less happy with the difficulty gap.

      Upd: it's not your fault that there aren't enough testers.

isn't the checker supposed to strip trailing whitespaces in the output ?

I am not able to get why my solution is giving WA on Div-2 (problem c) , can anyone give a Countercase for my solution, it will be really helpful

Can someone help me in Problem XOR And Multiply
when i used (1LL<<32), i got correct answer , but when i used that power function which calculates power in logn time , i got wrong answer. I think the TC of 2nd solution was sufficient to pass all the test cases

Correct Submission Wrong submission
