My Solution: link

I have checked the top of both strings and printed the lexicographically smaller one,

if both characters are same, I have traversed both the strings until I find a difference in character or I reach the end of one of the strings,

and according to the character after the above loop, I have printed either the first or second string’s characters.

I’ve tested my code on various test cases,

Can someone tell me where I have gone wrong? or provide a testcase where my code fails?

Your code is failing in following test cases…

thanks a lot!
(I changed the first string to smaller one(length) and second string to the larger one in my code and it works now)

I checked a lot of cases on your code. The only anomaly I found was what bansal stated. This OEJU thing was the nightmare…

Can someone tell me where I have done wrong??
