### PROBLEM:

Given a year, determine whether SnackDown was hosted in that year or not. SnackDown was hosted in years 2010, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019.

### SUPER QUICK EXPLANATION

• Explanation is even quicker.

### EXPLANATION

Read the number, and check if N is one of the above years. If yes, print “HOSTED”. Otherwise, print “NOT HOSTED”.

If-else clause or set can be used for checking if N is one of the years in which contest was hosted.

Editorialist’s rant: Few of my friends said that they like short and to the point editorials. Here you go! xD

### Time Complexity

Time complexity is O(1) per test case.

### AUTHOR’S AND TESTER’S SOLUTIONS:

Feel free to Share your approach, If it differs. Suggestions are always welcomed.

I thought its even more neat to use sets. Just loop through all years and insert them in the set. Then we can check if a year is good or not in o(logn).

I dont like your short editorials @taran_1407 please make longer ones as they are more informative and I get to learn something from them

The crux of the story is, that length (of editorials!) really does matter.

SUPER QUICK EXPLANATION
Explanation is even quicker. xD

On a serious note, It is extremely trivial problem even for beginners.

This is not even problem, this is just like solution

That’s why a short editorial

Is this solution correct?
#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
int N;
printf(“Enter to verify if SnackDown was hosted in a given year\n”);
scanf("%d",&N);

``````switch (N)
{
case 2010 :
printf("HOSTED");
break;

case 2011 :
printf("NOT HOSTED");
break;

case 2012 :
printf("NOT HOSTED");
break;

case 2013 :
printf("NOT HOSTED");
break;

case 2014 :
printf("NOT HOSTED");
break;

case 2015 :
printf("HOSTED");
break;

case 2016 :
printf("HOSTED");
break;

case 2017 :
printf("HOSTED");
break;

case 2018 :
printf("NOT HOSTED");
break;

case 2019 :
printf("HOSTED");
break;

}
``````

}

Remove the print statement asking to input year. Second thing, handle multiple cases.

See input format of problem.
