PiasRoY's blog

By PiasRoY, history, 5 days ago, In English,

I tried to solve this problem using HLD and Segment Tree. I didn't find LCA explicitly rather used HLD.

Code: https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/BfxMZH9hz3/

This solution gives runtime error. I can't find any reason for this kind of verdict.

I have already read this blog but couldn't understand why my code isn't working.

Can anyone help me?

You are asking what's wrong with your code? You should be asking what's wrong with yourself first. Fancy posting a wall of unreadable code without any explanation at all. I don't think anyone's gonna help you to debug.

    nik7 I thought someone from their previous experience may give any hint/testcase that will help me to understand RTE. I never asked anyone to read my code, though I should have explained/comment it (Sorry for that). But even if I did, you with your big ego won't be able to understand it.

Your HLD query is wrong, you may have that head[b] is a parent of lca(a, b) node. it would be better if you could find lca correctly.

    Fischer I run that query when both nodes are in different chains. Can you give any testcase?
