This is about the CF round 260 Problem A (Laptops)

I saw this code as an accepted solution. How could this approach solve this problem.? It seems extremely simple. Not even used a sort function.

As you can see all ai(prices) and all bi(quality) lie between 1 to n and are all distinct. That is the key , now SUPPOSE we sort the laptops on basis of price then a laptop can be better only when it has a quality > price coz all are distinct. Think about it it is a simple logic :)
