2 years of my coding journey and still thinking solving approach in noob way. Stuck in a very easy problem for 2 days, and not for single time I thought that if I count product of all elements then it will be overflowed! How noob I am!! spent more than 2 days on this easy problem!! What should I do now? Is it high time to give it up my coding journing? I am too tired.....

      You should look after solution or ask someone no need to waste your time on the same problem, it happens.

    So what should I do now? Need to solve more intermediate level problems? Or give up solving problem?

      Forget them. Do not get stuck on a particular rate let's say X, Solving around 30-60 problems (depending) is usually sufficient, then move on to rate X+100 and so forth, and if you are in rate X that does not mean you can not solve X+400 for example, Try, be a fighter, you will not lose anything. And if you find the first few problems at rate X difficult that's normal, just try to solve them or even do an upsolve, and learn from them and afterward you will notice that this rate starts to feel easier. And I think spending 1 hour of truly thinking on the problem or until you exhaust all your ideas is enough, then review the editorial

I prefer that you don't solve simple problems (A — B); I saw your solutions, you only solved A and B, it didn't improve your knowledge.

You must solve minimum DIV-3 C D E F DIV-4, you must solve complete problems.

Don't worry. Pay attention to the summary after solving a problem. It helps you solve other similar problems.

Do more hard problems bro. That's the only way to improve.
