Help in C

If we've found such ri then all prefix goes to one group and suffix — to another.??look at it in this way... if we have such an ri.. then that means all the segments that lie on the right side of current index have their l and r greater than ri... and all the segments before have their l and r <= current ri.. so ri can work as a boundary point where every thing on left can go to one set and everything on right go to the other.

I am totally not understand the solution of problem G, can anyone help me ? :(((

Thanks for your fast Editorials <3

Anyone please explain D. GCD Counting

Your proof of the solution of problem G suggests that one can do something a little bit simpler.

Just write all the numbers in base 2 and put them as rows of a matrix (the order doesn't matter). Then the answer is just the rank of that matrix. Of course, the corner case has to be taken into account, i.e. if the xor of all numbers equals zero, then the answer is -1.

Oh, I agree! Of thought of prefix XORs for so long that I missed the thing the prefix XOR is a linear combination of the numbers in it itself.

I don't care if this is downvoted but Problem D editorial is not properly written.

Problems with the editorial in D.

1. "

Let's for each v calculate the path of the maximum length to pass through it"It does not say why are we calculating it and where are we using this.

2. The last paragraph seems to be the heart of algorithm and it is written in just two lines without much explanation.

3. The code uses dp to store something but the editorial doesn't mention anything about it and so for someone who is reading through the code how the hell are we supposed to know what is dp[i].

4. The code is not properly commented.

I don't know if the author write editorial for those who already know how to solve the problem. CF editorials are fast, which is great but they need a more of detailing.

Apart from this the contest and problems were great!

Lastly can anybody explain the solution for problem D?:p

Sure, the solution must be detailed for people with low rating like me, because its an educational round.

Thirst of all it should contained the definitions of tree. That is the difference between tree from this task and graph. What is the the simple path (probably some pictures will help me)?

Every time I'm solving Codeforces contest dynamic or graph tasks stopped me. Please help or Ill never have progress here.

Thirst of all it should contained the definitions of tree. That is the difference between tree from this task and graph. What is the the simple path.All I am saying is the editorial should be such that the main algorithm used to solve the problem should be properly conveyed to the audience(and thus more detailing of that is required) and not the things you are talking about.

I agree I failed at explaining the solution and I'm sorry for it.

I genuinely tried to cover the parts that I believe to matter to the solution. I prefer to think of included code as a reference to one of the possible implementations of editorial, not the only one of the kind. The part with two pointers and such definitely takes the most number of lines in my code, but no way it's the most important. Like you don't even have to do two pointers over there, there are multiple ways to update the answer with the array of values for children.

The editorial, though, came out to be understandable only for those who have already coded the similar things, whoops.

You can say that again.

Here is my approach to problem D (Although I did a silly mistake during contest but was able to solve after the contest)

Firstly I rooted the tree at 1st node (you can root it at any node). I kept a map for every node which denotes the following —

`dp[u][gcd] = dist`

, where`dist`

is maximum distance possible in a path thatstartswith a node that is in subtree of`u`

andendsat node`u`

and the gcd of the path is`gcd`

.How to calculate this?

This can be done using dfs. Initially for every node put

`dp[u][a[u]] = 1`

if a[u] is not 1. Then do the following —Why do we need this?

For each node

`u`

we have two options -`dp[x][g1] = dist1`

and`dp[y][g2] = dist2`

and`gcd(g1, g2, a[u]) != 1`

,`ans = max(ans, dist1 + dist2 + 1)`

This can be also incorporated in the same dfs as follows —

The trick is that when we are visiting i'th child, the ans upto (i — 1)'th child would already be included in the parent's dp and could be used.

Awesome, I don't get why this isn't the tutorial for problem D. It is way more understandable

Awesome tutorial __naruto__!

I think there is a minor error in the code in the if condition (

if(_gcd(a[v], a[u]) !=-1)_ ) shouldn't it beif(_gcd(a[v], a[u]) !=1)_ in the second code.Thanks Ghost0fSparta, Edited!

__naruto__ would you plz explain the complexity. Its not quite obvious.

Doesn't your algo consume O(n^2) space?

Hmm, let's try this one more time but with references to the code. The code contains:

dp[v] — the vector of the pairs (p,len) — the length of the maximum path that goes throughvsuch that all numbers on it is divisible byp;calc(v) — dfs to calc children before the parent.After I calculate

dp[u] for all childrenuofv, I take all these vectors and merge them into a single vectorchd. I'll use it now to update the answer. Let's look into two kinds of paths to go thoroughv:pchdincludes only one pair such thatchd[i].first=p. Ifa[v]%p= 0, then you can extend this path tov(update the answer withchd[i].second+ 1), otherwise update the answer withchd[i].second;pchdincludes multiple pairs such thatchd[i].first=p. You want the total path to be the longest one, thus you should choose the two longest pairs fromchd. Store it inmx1 (the larger of two) andmx2. Ifa[v]%p= 0, then update the answer withmx1 + 1 +mx2, otherwise — withmx1.And the final part is calculating

dp[v]. Take allchdpairs and extend the possible ones tov. If some primes ofa[v] were not included in there, push pairs (p, 1) for them.Bonus for G: Prove that answer doesn't change if we permute elements of array a.

Why is this downvoted?) It isn't that obvious from the editorial and jury's solution as well.

Any prefix can be represented as xors of elements of a, and any element in a can be represented as pre[i]^pre[i+1], so the array of prefix actually contains the same number of basis as array a, thereby the answer should be the same.

Since PikMike says so, I'll explain the model solution for D.

What does it mean that the greatest common divisor of some set of numbers is not 1? It means that there exists some prime number

pthat divides the greatest common divisor. Therefore, it divides all the numbers in a set. Okay, now we can fix some prime numberp, find the best path that passes only through vertices witha_{ i}divisible byp, then fix another prime, and check all the primes from 2 to 199999 this way.What happens when we fix a prime number? Basically, the vertices of the graph are now divided into two groups: those that are forbidden to pass through (having

a_{ i}not divisible byp) and those that are allowed. Let's delete all forbidden vertices from the tree (and all the edges that are incident to at least one forbidden vertex).What will the resulting graph look like? It might become disconnected (for example, in the first sample case, if we fix

p= 2, vertices 1 and 3 are disconnected), but it's still acyclic because removing edges or vertices from a graph won't create a new cycle. So, each connected component of the graph is a tree. Now we have to find the best path in each connected component.Okay, how to determine the "best" path? If the number of vertices on a path is

x, and the path is simple, then the number of edges belonging to this path isx- 1. And since each component is a tree, then we are interested in finding the diameter of the tree, which can be done inO(|V|): pick some vertex from the tree (let's denote it asv_{0}), run DFS or BFS from it, find the vertex having the greatest distance fromv_{0}(let it bev_{1}; if there are muliple such vertices, pick any of them), run DFS or BFS from it, and find some vertex having greatest vertex fromv_{1}(let it bev_{2}). The path betweenv_{1}andv_{2}is the diameter.Why does it work fast enough? Each number exceeding

Acan have no more then prime divisors, so the sum of sizes of the graphs we are finding the diameters in is bounded as .Okay, how to implement it? When we pick some prime

p, instead of deleting forbidden vertices and edges (which leads us to complexity ofO(nA) or even greater), let's create a new graph: renumerate all allowed vertices so that their numbers become 1, 2, ...,k, and apply the aforementioned solution to this graph. That is the easiest way to make it without using some auxiliary sets or other data structures.upd:Well, in fact, model solution is because I was too lazy to write fast factorization algorithms. But it's worth mentioning that if you want to achieve complexity of , there's no need to write Eratosthenes sieve: finding all divisors of all numbers from 1 toAin can be done using two nested for loops, the outer one iterating on the divisor, and the inner one iterating on the numbers divisible by that divisor.Can you provide the link to the model solution please?

It lacks some optimizations I explained in the post, and its complexity is for factorization and for actually solving the problem. If you are still interested, here it is.

It seems that such a decision.

https://codeforces.com/contest/1101/submission/48393923

Can you please explain the complexity of your code??

I implemented your solution but its giving TLE. Can you please help https://codeforces.com/contest/1101/submission/48648294

Your solution works in because for each prime you check all numbers to find which are divisible by this prime. To improve it, you have to factorize each

a_{ i}, and for each prime memorize a list of vertices havinga_{ i}divisible by it — and when choosing a prime, iterate only over those vertices, not over the whole tree.Thank you so much

Could you please explain what is A here and how are the space/time complexities computed as I feel A varies for each integer(if A is the number on the vertex)?

In C part for the test case 1 4 1 2 2 4 4 8 5 10. the output should be 1 1 1 2 but according to the editorial it's giving -1

[4, 8] and [5, 10] intersect.

Thanks i misinterpreted the question as for segment[ li, ri] i didn't thought it meant range li to ri. BTW what's a good approach to solve the question if instead of segments, sets with discrete value is given. For ex. {1,2,3},{2,3,4},{7,8,9} (ans-1 1 2) .Should i use set_intersection and iterate over all sets?

Build an undirected graph with two types of vertices: vertices representing numbers, and vertices representing sets. Connect all "set"-vertices with corresponding "number"-vertices. Now we have to color this graph into two colors so vertices in the same component share the same color.

I get nothing from task G tutorial, could anyone explain the solution?

Can anyone please explain why opt[l][r][k] <= opt[l][r+1][k] in problem F..?? I am not able to visualize this.

I have a slightly different solution for F. We still calculate

dp[l][r][k], and the recurrence is still . However, we notice thatdp[l][j][k- 1] increases as you increasej, anda[r] -a[j]decreasesas you increasej. Thus, the min value of will occur when they are as close to each other as possible, i.e. when |dp[l][j][k- 1] - (a[r] -a[j])| is minimized, and this quantity is unimodal so we can binary search for it. For memory optimization, we simply notice that we don't need to store all the queries, and can process them online, giving usO(n^{3}) space rather thanO(n^{3}+q), which barely fits into the memory. The DP calculation takes time, which also barely fits into the time limit.48306162

Can anyone help me in finding mistake in D? I am not able to find why it is giving WA. Submission

`Choose your i/o functions wisely.`

Actually I think a problem shouldn't be annoyed with slow i/o.But you guys should know scanf/printf is faster than cin/cout.When the input is larger than 5MB you should use scanf/printf without hestitation.

(Also the only way to make this simple problem E harder is to hack some slow i/o's...Maybe?)

For problem D, I have used the concept that-For any vertex 'v' it can either be a part of the longest path or not. Then i calculated the longest path in its sub-tree and updated the max value, and then passed the value of the longest path obtained from its children to its parent. But this approach is giving wrong answer on test 5. Here is my code, why isn't this approach working. https://codeforces.com/contest/1101/submission/48279577

Consider this test case :

The answer should be

`3`

but your code outputs`2`

.The problem is with how you are calculating answer. You are returning

`maxx`

+1 and so are never considering the case when the largest path can be through one vertex conncting two nodes of the children when`maxx>0`

. Also while calculating the`ans`

variable you are not considering the fact that`smaxx`

and`maxx`

can be having their gcd = 1(eg`smaxx`

= 3 because of path having gcd = 2 and`maxx`

= 3 because of path having gcd = 3 and when you say answer = 3+3=6 you are considering a path having gcd(2,3) = 1). There can be more but I think these are the major ones.https://codeforces.com/contest/1101/submission/48316745 well, i am considering the case when the largest path can be through the vertex i am currently on

`ans = max(ans,maxx+smax+1)`

. In the last solution i missed to give = in`len>=max`

condition. Here`maxx`

is the longest path in the subtree of the current vertex and`smaxx`

is second longest. thats why`maxx+smaxx+1`

gives the longest path through the current vertex. Regarding your second argument that`gcd(smaxx,maxx)=1`

. why would i be taking gcd of length of the paths.I didn't mean length of paths, I meant the gcd of all ai s in the path

I got the problem with my code. its failing on test 27 which is.

`4`

`3 6 2 2`

`1 2`

`2 3`

`3 4`

outputting 2 instead of 3. thanks anyways!!And it is still giving wrong answer for the test case I provided above.

https://ideone.com/9RCqNT The output is 3. u probably have seen my first solution. see this one. or the second one that i provided in my second comment.

I have another idea about D but I got WA. Could anybody help me?

I tried to deal with it by DP in trees. Denote

dp[i] as a set where stored some pairs (g,d). A pair (g,d) indp[i] means a path formvto vertexithat the gcd of vertices in the path isgand its length isd, wherevis one of the grandsons of vertexi. It's evidently I needn't store the pairs (g,d) whereg= 1 and also I can ignore the vertexiwherea[i] = 1. And if there are two pairs which have the sameg, I can ignore the one with the lowerd.Of course a pair (

a[i], 1) is indp[i] ifa[i] > 1. Consider all children of vertexi, assuming that now I'm considerv. Get all pairs indp[v], assuming that now I get (g_{0},d_{0}). Insert pair (gcd(g_{0},a[i]),d_{0}+ 1) todp[i] and maintain the optimal pairs ifgcd(g_{0},a[i]) > 1, which means vertexilinks into the path. However, the answer can be the path from one of the grandsons of vertexito another. So before the insertion, I consider all pairs indp[i] to get the potential answer.dp[i] now stores some pairs stand for the path from vertexito one of the grandsons of vertexu, where vertexuis one of the children which is already considered of vertexi. Assuming that I'm considering pair (g_{1},d_{1}) indp[i],ans=max(ans,d_{0}+d_{1}) ifgcd(g_{0},g_{1}) > 1.I don't know what's wrong with my approach or my code because of my poor ability. Here's my Submission 48313349. I'd appreciate it if someone help me.

Sorry for my poor English.

It seems, you return from dfs when

a_{ u}= 1. I believe, that best answer might be in a subtree of such a vertex, but you won't reach it.Oh yes. What a stupid mistake I made! Thanks a lot! :)

But I still got WA. :(

My answer is greater on test 6. Could you help me again? Thanks. 48320981

Try this test

Thank you very much! I knew how to improve my approach. :)

hkjhbkb

The idea of brute is ok, your bfs has a bug in it.

ksjgfisudgc

Hi, Your code is a bit difficult to read, but I've found a testcase, for which you code outputs Wrong Answer. Since Testcase 6 is big, so it would be harder to debug, so try this:

Correct Answer is 3 and your code is outputting 4.

Hope this helps

Thank you very much and sorry for my poor skill.

I know what mistake I've made now. As I insert pairs into

dp[i], I may get the two paths from the same child. So I can insert them to another set so that I can't reach them when considering the child. And in the end I insert them intodp[i]. I finally got AC! Thank PikMike and atom0410! :)I just found out my solution for problem D was incorrect . But yet I got AC even after the system test . It happened because of weak test cases .

My Submission :

The correct answer should be 3 , but my solution is giving 2 .

Can you guys rejudge problem D

I added the test, thanks. We won't rejudge but all the further submissions will be tested on it.

The test cases were very weak.I also saw a solution which was accepted but was giving wrong answer for other testcases. https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/64484

Aha! I love problem F.

I solved this problem by randomization and binary search. The code is easy to read. 48318449

Let us analyze this problem, we know every truck must have the max gas-tanks. For a truck, the more oil, the better.

We randomly choose a truck to calculate ( use binary search ), It can be considered that in general, half of the trucks do not exceed the maximum fuel consumption. In other words, we only use logm operations( binary search) at most.

This is the idea of Blogewoosh #6.

Could you please further explain what your check function does ?

Hey PikMike , I am not able to understand that why solution for E getting TLE thought its complexity is O(N), but it is accepted when i used ios::sync_with_stdio(false); cin.tie(0); N <= 500000 Solution ID : https://codeforces.com/contest/1101/submission/48324180 Solution ID (without ios::...) : https://codeforces.com/contest/1101/submission/48324102

And the time limit for Question is 3sec.

Can you help with this, Thanks in advance:)

Because reading from stdin using cin without disabling its synchronization with stdio is slow. Also in some cases its better to use

`scanf`

,`printf`

.Some tests were already made: https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/5217?locale=en

for problem D fix a prime p and find longest path with vertices divisible by p! Consider the vertices divisible by p, there are some disjoint maximal subtree with all vertices divisible by p obviously the longest path is diameter of one of these subtrees. so we will find for each vertex v and prime p as prime factor of v , the diameter of the subtree contains v , it can be done with dp on tree! we have nlogMAXN pair(v,p) and each dfs goes to some of them so in total we visit nlogMAXN state, also to avoid going to each subtree many time we should mark state (v,p) if we use a set the time will be nlog^2(MAXN) or if we use an array of sets reduce it to n*logMAXN*loglogMAXN or if we use hashing it is nlogMAXN! :)

My submission

bro, i solved D using recursion, at each node i m storing the maxdepth for each factor in its subtree, so if a parent node have three child all three child would have been processed before i come to process the parent node and again i will store the same set of variables for parent node and WILL ALSO CHECK(means consider) THE PATHS ACROSS THE CHILDS,

this approach gives the wrong answer->https://codeforces.com/contest/1101/submission/48359404

on 8th test case i have considered some big path which i should not have done. please help in this, code is quite clean.

Can somebody explain me how to check ri < min lj quickly in problem C? UPD. okay, I've tried to read code again and I think I understood.

Can you explain it to me, please? I didn't understand how to check that either.

Help T^T I still don't understand the first example provided in D. Shouldn't the output be 3 instead of 1, since the first and the third vertex has gcd greater than one with distance three? Can someone please kindly explain to me...

The path from 1 to 3 Doesn't have Gcd>1.

No.. Sorry, I still don't get it. The tree should look like: 2--3--4 2 and 4 have gcd = 2 > 1 and dist(2, 4) = 3.

I don't understand why the output is 1... By definition, dist(x, x) = 1, which means the output could only be one when there is only one node in the tree and the node is greater than one.

Can you give further explanations? Thank you very much.

You have to take Gcd of all the numbers lying in the path from u to v in the tree(including u&v).In the tree the path from node1 to node3 goes like 1->2->3,so the gcd will be gcd(2,3,4) that is 1.

Got it! Thank you :)

Can anyone Explain the approach of problem G?

1101A — Minimum Integer Solution & explanation

https://cyclocoder.blogspot.com/2019/01/codeforces-1101a-solution-and.html

Cannot understand G :(

Could someone please explain (or point to a tutorial/explanation) why this method indeed gives us the basis vectors ? Intuitively it looks like it's doing Gauss elimination but I am having a difficult time understanding how.

`base[i]`

saves some bit vector where the first 1 is in position`i`

(by first position, I mean the largest position). Now, when we want to add some bit vector`v`

, we try to see if we can consturct`v`

using the unfinished basis we currently have (that is the first loop). Why the loop works? Because, that loop tries to eliminate every bit individually (based on the property from above). If it succeeds, then`v`

will have zero value. The second part. Well, if`v`

is not zero, then that means that our basis doesn't have a value for`base[j]`

, where`j`

is the largest index, such that`v[j] == 1`

. And we will just add it to our unfinished basis.Here is the code I use for F2 space Gauss. It is shorter and maybe more clear.

Sorry,ignore the comment.

What does even and odd number of pr[x] means in G? Can someone explain 2nd para in more approachable way?

I think the following is what it claims:

Given any division

D, you can always construct the xor result of some subset of {pr[x] | x is a right boundary inD} by picking some segments inD, if the subset size is even.Then it claims this construction also works in odd case, by doing some minor changes.

e.g. Given an array A and a division A[0...3), A[3...4), A[4...5), A[5...8), A[8...11) You can construct xor result of any subset of {pr[3], pr[4], pr[5], pr[8], pr[11]}.

The proof is not hard actually, just write them down like this and you will probably see why and how it is proven:

(Question C)Can anyone tell me why I am getting WA. http://codeforces.com/contest/1101/submission/48462932

You are sorting the ranges and you must give the answer in the same order as the input, so you need to store the initial position of each range. For example: 1 3 5 8 1 4 7 10. The correct output is: 2 1 2, or 1 2 1. But your code's output is 1 2 2.

What about this input in problem C ?

Should'nt this have any answer ?

bandi_on_1900 How and why? The question ask to divide into two groups do that any segment of one group doesn't overlap another segment's group...

In problem C, can you explain what you mean by "union of all segments has two and more segments"

e.g. if we have 4 segments,

1 3

2 5

4 7

6 10

What is the union, and how many segments does the union have?

For G, I forgot to find basis of prefix instead calculated basis of all the a_i's and it still passes. code how to explain this?

Because each a_i is also a linear combination of elements in prefix xor.

May you explain why the fact that each

a_{ i}is a linear combination of elements in prefix xor implies that arrayahas a maximal basis size equal to that of prefix xor array?Let

Adenotes set ofa_{ i}for alli, andSdenotes set of all prefix sums.Any set of vectors which generates

S(or more precisely generates span(S)) will also generateA, which givesdimension (size of basis) of(If not, we have a generator ofS≥ dimension ofA.Asmaller than its basis, which gives a contradiction because we can find linearly dependent vectors in any basis ofA.)On the other hand, any set of vectors which generates

Awill generateS, thusdimension of.S≤ dimension ofAMaybe I am wrong because I am not a math major student, please feel free to correct me.

Thanks a lot for your reply.

But I have a concern here. If any basis

bofScan generateAand has a sizes< size of basis ofA, why will this cause any basis ofAto have linearly dependent vectors?bcontains elements fromS(not fromA), what guarantees that we can choose a subset fromAwhich generatesAand has a sizes?To make it clear, the term "basis" used in the above refer to

"A set of linearly independent vectors which generates the whole vector space". It turns out that all the bases of a space (for example, span(A))MUSThave the same size.Consider a basis

U= {u_{1},u_{2},u_{3}, ...,u_{ n}} ofSwith sizen, and assume there exist a basisV= {v_{1},v_{2},v_{3}, ...,v_{ k}} ofAwith sizek, wherek>n. SinceAis linear combination ofS, we can conclude thatUis also a basis ofA. It follows that all the vectors inVcan be written as linear combination of elements inU. Pick the firstnelement ofV, we can write them like this:E1:c_{11}*u_{1}+c_{12}*u_{2}+ ... +c_{1n}*u_{ n}=v_{1}E2:c_{21}*u_{1}+c_{22}*u_{2}+ ... +c_{2n}*u_{ n}=v_{2}...

En:c_{ n1}*u_{1}+c_{ n2}*u_{2}+ ... +c_{ nn}*u_{ n}=v_{ n}Left hand side of these equations are linearly independent vectors, and so does right hand side, so any linear combination of these equations must be non-zero (except all the coefficient are zeros). We can solve these equations and find a unique way to write

u_{ i}as linear combination ofv_{ i}, (for example, doing gaussian elimination, both side of any of the equations will always be non-zero during the process, there must be only one solution), which implies thatv_{1},v_{2}, ...,v_{ n}is a basis, andv_{ n + 1},v_{ n + 2}, ...,v_{ k}, already known as linear combinations ofu_{ i}, are actually linear combinations ofv_{1},v_{2}, ...,v_{ n}, which contradict to our assumption that allv_{ i}are linearly independent.For the second problem, it is always possible to start from any element in

Ato obtain a basis. Let size of basis bek, if we have a set of linearly independent vectorsVwith size <k, there must exist some elementxin A which is not in span(V), otherwiseVis a smaller basis, a contradiction. So we just addxtoVand repeat the argument until size ofVisk.This is also why all possible choices of divisions contains

pr[n], but we can always construct set of linearly independent vectors containspr[n] with size equals to the dimension, ifpr[n] itself is non-zero.By the way, since subset XOR is basically

all possible linear combination of that set over field F2, it is not necessary to forceUcontains only element fromS, it can contain any element from span(S), and so doesV.For more detail and theorem, you can refer to this.

I am very sorry for the very late reply. Thanks a lot for your effort and for the link you provided, it helped me a lot.

mohamedeltair

SheepRanger Can you explain this part? Now you just want find the division that produces the maximum number of linearly independent numbers (binary vectors). That is — the size of the basis of the space of chosen numbers (binary vectors).

A valid division is some choice of partitioning the numbers to k partitions (k>0), such that the xor-sum of any non-empty combination of partitions is non-zero. This means that if you view the xor-sum xs of each partition as a vector of bits of the binary representation of xs, all the vectors must be linearly independent under mod 2 (no linear combination of them other than the trivial combination is equal to zero).

As the basis of a set of numbers sn is a subset of sn of maximum size such that this subset's elements are linearly independent, the problem reduces to finding the size of the basis of prefix xor elements.

mohamedeltair

Thanks I got that part. But I have 1 more doubt, suppose we get our basis and it has 5 vectors, now how can we say that each of those 5 linear independent vectors correspond to xor sum of each of the segment of a division with 5 segments? That is how are we relating vectors in the basis and the xor sum of segments in the division.

vivace_jr

If we have k segments, where the left and right indices of the ith segment are l(i) and r(i), and pref is our prefix-XOR array, the XOR-sum of the ith segment will be pref[r(i)] XOR pref[l(i)-1] (assuming 1-based indexing).

Note that for all l(i)>1, l(i)-1 = r(i-1), and for l(i)=1, l(i)-1 = 0 (has no significance when XORed with anything). This implies that any combination of segments will have an XOR-sum consisting of pref[r(i)] elements.

Also any combination of pref[r(i)] elements will have an XOR-sum equal to the XOR-sum of some combination of segments (to include some r(i), either include the ith or the (i+1)th segment (exactly one of them), and to not include some r(i), include both the ith and the (i+1)th segments or don’t include any of them).

Therefore, all combinations of segments and all combinations of pref[r(i)] elements will result in the same XOR-sums.

i overlooked "a" and "another". this issue has already cleaned up.

My kotlin solution for E keeps timing out. The tutorial says to choose your IO functions carefully. Is there a better option than readLine()?

use printf and scanf

Kotlin doesn't have printf and scanf. As far as I know the best performing IO functions are readLine() and printLn(). These are already the functions I am using.

Problem D can also be done with the help of Centroid Decomposition.

Very similar to the problem PRIMEDST

Just a small change is required. Figure it out yourself. It's fun. :)

I think the first dimension will be the current position of the truck, 2nd dim — final position 3rd dim — no. of refuelling left.

So, at each step we have 2 choices — either choose to refill or not refill.

But we have to also consider what is the maximum distance gap between 2 refills till now. Do I need to keep the thought in mind that in the current dp state I need not remember the fact that when did the last time I refuelled the truck? How should I update my dp array with this information?
