Problem Related to OCT16

…####### ##########################################

This question shouldn’t be answered until the current long contest, OCT16, is going on.

Please, don’t ask questions related to ongoing contests. Take the question down, bro.

From the past few contests, there has been an increase int he doubts being asked during the contest, especially related to the steps to solve the problem. All this is being done in the name of learning during the contest.

It is good you want to learn during the 10-day long contest, but there are some problems too. You can search the google for the type of the data structure you want to implement. Ask doubts if the data structure or algorithm is not clear or implementation has some problems. But I request you all to refrain from asking doubts directly related to the question itself. It also spoils the question for many people out here who read these discussion forum and after getting hint on the problem, feel that the question has been spoiled from them.

Also, doubts regarding the question should be asked in the comments section only instead of the discussion forum. All the relevant comments are answered always during the contest. If you feel that your comment was not answered within 1-2 days, it means you comment was off-topic or there is something you missed in the question. It just doesn’t mean your comment was not read by the author or admin. They answer many doubts/ comments related to question out there, some are just left out because they just do not add anything to the question.
