    We are extremely sorry, we tried to avoid clashes but there are many contests scheduled today so we couldn't avoid it and since it was our fest's contest it was necessary to conduct it today.

Problem "Is This A Long Challenge" is very similar to this problem.

Btw the last problem "Yet Another Mod Mod Mod" is nice though. How to solve it?

Problems are fascinating, especially problems "Swap Sort" and "Yet Another Mod Mod Mod". I really enjoy it.

Btw, what should I do if I have difficulties in filling the register chart...
