      Lol xD The reason of such queue is using SPOJ's backend by CodeChef and it's not scalable at all :( Most probably, the contest will be extended by 45 minutes.

Task were interesting, thanks !

I think round should be unrated, conditions were same for everyone, but again it is not same situation if you have 2 hours or 3 hours.

I think "MEX and Ranges" problem is similar to this CF problem. I directly copied my online solution from that problem and submitted. Unfortunately timit limit is too strict, that is why 2 testcases in the last subtask do not pass. But I believe with some optimizations, I can get full score. My solution works in O(N5 / 3).

    actually this complexity is intended to get TLE, the fact that MEXRNG doesn't ask for updates will allow O(q sqrt n) solution, but yes this problem is really similar if we were aware of it we wouldn't use the version without update.

    That CF Problem allows offline solution, in fact, it seems like only offline solution is possible. How did you turn your solution into an online solution?

well something really interesting happened today and I am having a really tough time understanding why my two solutions one Accepted and another TLE one takes 0.8s while another gives TLE at 3.1s and both are 99.9% same and the only differnce is

ACCEPTED


------------------ long nVal = 0; if (present[nKey]) { nVal = count[nKey]; if (sum[nKey] % sum[key] == 0) ans += nVal*value; } nKey += key; ------------------

TLE


------------------ long nVal = 0; if (present[nKey]) nVal = count[nKey]; if (sum[nKey]%sum[key] == 0 && present[nKey]) { ans += nVal*value; } nKey += key; ------------------

is % operation this much heavy
