Necessity of C++ for competitive programming:

Is C++ really a necessity for competitive programming or we can have all the work done through language like java.

It dosent matter what language you choose i guess!! i mostly use python and many other good people here use java!

Java is accepted by all judges. So it’s upto you and your comfort level in CPP or java. Language is never a barrier.

Because looking at the leaderboard , it seems majority use C++.
