Hello Codeforces!

We, the disciples of Omkar (qlf9, Tlatoani, hu_tao, golions, and Omkar's newest disciple, rabaiBomkarBittalBang), have written our third contest: Codeforces Round #724 (Div. 2)Omkar 3. It will be held on Jun/06/2021 17:35 (Moscow time) and will be rated for users in Division 2 (rating lower than 2100). As usual participants with rating >= 2100 are allowed to compete too, but the contest will be unrated for them.

You will be given 2 hours to solve 6 problems. There may or may not be an interactive problem, so it would behoove you to read the guide for interactive problems. There also may or may not be competitive programming problems, so you should be sure to thoroughly understand everything here.

We would like to thank:

The scoring distribution is 500 — 1000 — 1500 — 2000 — 2250 — 2500.

May Omkar be with you!

Update: Thank you for participating in our contest! The editorial is here. We have video editorials for every problem there!

I'm just curious about how speakers of other languages express CP terms. You can also share the literal translation if you think it's interesting — does your language's word for a tree (connected undirected acyclic graph) the same as the word the plant with leaves and a wood trunk? Share whatever you want, such as the pronunciation or word in the script of your language. If you say basic CP terms exactly the same as in English, share that because I find that pretty interesting.
