Just received the following message : Attention!

Your solution 68541868 for the problem 1285D significantly coincides with solutions Hemose/68520332, YahiaSherif/68541868. Such a coincidence is a clear rules violation. Note that unintentional leakage is also a violation. For example, do not use ideone.com with the default settings (public access to your code). If you have conclusive evidence that a coincidence has occurred due to the use of a common source published before the competition, write a comment to post about the round with all the details. More information can be found at http://codeforces.com/blog/entry/8790. Such violation of the rules may be the reason for blocking your account or other penalties. In case of repeated violations, your account may be blocked.

I the two solutions are not even close to being similar except for the Scanner which is used by most students in our University because it was implemented by a senior in our community here is the link to the Scanner class . https://github.com/AhmadElsagheer/Competitive-programming-library/blob/master/other_algorithms/Scanner.java

PLEASE HELP !!!!! All my problems are "skipped".
