Thanks for replying and for the great editorial! Will look at the problems!

Thanks for the editorial, I have come across a similar question on hacker earth with stricter constraints :

the author’s solution gives SIGSEGV even after changing chunk vector size (1000) , editorial on hackerearth seems to do something different with 2 fenwick trees any help on explaining hacker earth approach or modifying author’s solution to pass it on hacker earth will be much appreciated
