This contest will be also hold on the old rating system, right?

Btw, when will the contests hold on the new rating system?

Gentle reminder!

That was too gentle

`How to solve D ??`

Is D hard than E or its only for me :(

No it's pretty easy if you know some basic probabilityty

Let dp[i] be the expected number of moves required to connect remaining i nodes,

Then dp[i] = dp[i — 1] + (n / i)

Our answer is dp[n — 1] because we need to connect remaining n — 1 nodes

Explanation :

Lets say I still need to connect x nodes, then there are n — x already connected nodes. If I make a move now then the probability to connect a unconnected node is ( x / n ) and for already connect node is ( n — x ) / n

Working on this,dp[i] = (dp[i — 1] + 1) * (i / n) (I connect a unconnected vertices and hence i-1 remain) + (dp[i] + 1) * (n — i / n) (I connect a already connected vertices)

Rearranging this equation, you would get above equation

Each vertex must be choosen at least once.

Can you suggest few more problems like this one ?

still can't solve F , how to represent the state?

How to do F ? Is it some sort of digit dp ?

I didn't manage to solve D(I would be very grateful if someone could explain it), but I definitely learnt something new from this round, with problem E: https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/57934?#comment-416190.

It's like a problem about "the expected number of girl friends you have in order to have all 12 of the constellations"

Why i am getting WA in just one test case in E? My code

For D, initially I misread and thought it meant "until the graph becomes

fullyconnected".My codes for anyone interested

DEWhat is the idea with E?

This is what he did in his solution

Sorry, I do not get that kind of language. What does it mean

`pos_i: an array of j such that A_j=i, in the increasing order`

?Edit: Ok, I think I understood.

pos[0] is a list of positions of all 0 in A[]. Then we iterate pos starting at 0. Foreach list of positions of value i we check if there are two such positions with a difference bigger than M. Because if there is such difference, then this means that there is a subarray in A[] of size at least M without that i.

In above solution, p[i] stores all positions at which i occurs in the given array. Now, let say i occurs at index j1 and j2(j1 < j2). j1 and j2 are consecutive indexes at which i occurs. so if j2-j1-1 >= m( occurs at distance greater than m) it can be our possible answer. As, he is traversing from 0 to n, first such number will be the answer (as we need minimum value).

Hope it helps!!
