# Extremely weak test cases in JULY 16 CHEFTET

Though I have not yet started this contest, one of my roommates was doing this question , and by an extremely wrong approach got full 100 marks , and I was left astounded .

If I am allowed to reveal , then I can mention some test cases where many submissions will fail if they are using same logic as of my roommate .

It is my request to admin as well as tester to please look into the matter , and rejudge the solutions.

Edit :- Thanks a lot admin and tester for changing the test cases . Also , I couldn’t understand why many people downvoted this post

question is not clear as, is it must that all Bi’s must fall on array A or some can remain? .
I took the question to be,“Some Bi’s can remain in the array B” and got accepted. In fact the the complexity is O(n) and i can’t understand why limits are n<10000.

@vamsi_deva I didn’t know that . My roommate used all of A[] and B[ ] , and with 2 line code got it AC . And now comes storm of downvotes

This happens often here. They should add new test cases or else problem has no meaning.

Two lines? Seriously? No wonder so many users solved it.

I will share the submission once the contest will be over , and in case they don’t change the cases , I am sure this will be disaster .

@apptica Exactly , it seems as if the problem was meant to be cakewalk .

Hi @apptica, we will take a look into this complaint and take necessary action very soon. Thanks for notifying.

Then this particular problem should be rejudged!! After the updation of the testcases.

I wish Codechef had strict test cases like Codeforces…even easier questions would be challenging

and I wish codechef had open hacks like educational rounds

This is not a place to ask this question , and moreover this is an ongoing contest . You have to figure it out yourself.

I made a function `solve()`, which was empty back then, and tried to submit it, and GOT AN AC!
I even commented on the problem. The problem is ambiguous, a lot of things are unclear!

I hope they either update the problem statement or change the test cases soon.

Well, why were you discussing the ongoing contest problem with your room mate though? You accept that you did not abide by CoC?
