 # HOLES - Editorial

### DIFFICULTY

EASY

EXPLANATION
You just simply need to do what is mentioned in problem statement. Just note that only letter “B” has two holes, and only letters “A”, “D”, “O”, “P”, “Q”, “R” have one hole. All other letters has no holes.

#include
using namespace std;

int main()
{
char str;int hole=0;
cout<<“Enter word”;
cin>>str;
for(int i=0;str[i]!=’\0’;i++)
{
if(str[i]==‘A’||str[i]==‘D’||str[i]==‘O’||str[i]==‘P’||str[i]==‘R’)
hole++;
else if(str[i]==‘B’)
hole+=2;
}
cout<<hole;

return 0;
}

@senginel you are asking for input in cout<<"enter Word " which is not required
further more you have to input test cases which u haven"t done
and also increase hole by 1 when str[i]==Q;

Can anyone told me why runtime error occur in this code(according to submission)

#include<stdio.h>
#include<string.h>
int main()
{
int i,j,k,holes;
char a , word;
scanf("%d",&i);
for(j=0;j<i;j++)
{
scanf("%s",word);
holes=0;
for(k=0;k<strlen(word-1);k++)
{
a=word[k];
if(a==‘A’||a==‘D’||a==‘O’||a==‘P’||a==‘Q’||a==‘R’) holes+=1;
if(a==‘B’) holes+=2;
}
printf("\nHOLES ARE %d\n",holes);
}
return 0;
}

#include<stdio.h>
#include<string.h>

``````int main()
{
int i,j=0,t,count1,count2;
char a;

scanf("%d",&t);

while(j<t)
{
if(t<=40)
{
scanf("%s",&a);
count1=0;
count2=0;
for(i=0;a[i]!='\0';i++)
{

if(a[i]=='A'||a[i]=='D'||a[i]=='O'||a[i]=='P'||a[i]=='Q'||a[i]=='R')
count1++;

else if(a[i]=='B')
count2=count2+2;

}

printf("%d",count1+count2);
}
j++;

}

return 0;

}``````

What’s wrong in this?/ why it is not accepting

its workin for all test cases.

I’m a newbie.Please,be patient and tell me what is wrong with my approach.
Regardless of what I enter as no. of test cases,only 1 input is accepted and no. of holes are not shown.

#include
using namespace std;
int b,t,i,c;
char d;
int holes(char a)
{
b=0;
for(i=0;a[i]!=NULL;i++)
{
if((a[i]==‘A’)|(a[i]==‘D’)|(a[i]==‘O’)|(a[i]==‘P’)|(a[i]==‘Q’)|(a[i]==‘R’))
b+=1;
else if(a[i]==‘B’)
b+=2;
}
return b;
}
int main()
{
cin>>t;
i=0;
while(i<t)
{
gets(d);
c=holes(d);
cout<<c;
i++;
}
return 0;
}

@sun1sun8080 i think u r not printing a new-line after every case…mostly that is the reason for your WA…hope this helps… #include

using namespace std;

int main()
{
int t,i=0;
char text;
int holes=0;
scanf("%d",&t);
gets(text);
while(t–){
fgets(text,100,stdin);
while(text[i]){
cout<<"\n\t ch:"<<text[i];
if(text[i]==‘A’||text[i]==‘O’||text[i]==‘P’||text[i]==‘D’||text[i]==‘R’||text[i]==‘Q’)
holes++;
else if(text[i]==‘B’)
holes+=2;
i++;
}
i=0;
printf("%d\n",holes);
holes=0;
}
return 0;
}

WA can some one help y ?

@s1h33p check this nw buddy ?

I’ve been struggling to find out what’s wrong with my code. The problem is the problem itself.

“For example letters “A”, “D”, “O”, “P”, “R” divide the plane into two
regions so we say these letters each
have one hole…”

… should be corrected as “A, D, O, P, Q, R” in codechef.com/problems/HOLES

Those are just examples.

whats wrong with this code

WATS WRONG WITH THIS CODE IT SAYS WA BUT IS RUNNING FOR ALL TEST CASE

Could someone please help me out with this? I’m getting WA with this code, but I’m unable to spot the bug.
