Hello Codeforces Community,
You will be given 6 algorithmic problems of various difficulty. All problems will have partial scoring, that is, points for each test case passed. Don't hesitate in scoring partial points in order to score as many points as possible if you want to get to the top.
Problems were prepared by me (rhezo). They have been thoroughly tested by Xsquare. Editorials written by me will be provided at the end of the contest. The problems are interesting and I hope you like the problemset. This is the first contest prepared by me, and I would love some feedback! I would like to thank belowthebelt who helped in preparation of the contest and making the contest in a good shape.
Prizes: T-shirts (for top 5 first year and second year students) and Amazon gift cards.
Good luck and have fun!
UPD: The contest starts in around 4 hours!
UPD 2: 15 minutes remaining!
UPD 3: Contest is live. All the best :)
UPD 4: Thanks for participating :)

Any discussion on the problems is welcome. :)
