    Or

    int n;
    cin >> n;
    vector<int> a(n);
    for(auto &x : a) cin >> x;
    cout << (set<int>(a.begin(), a.end()).size()==a.size()?"YES":"NO") << '\n';
    

    which I find even simpler.

Problem C,When I judge the horizontal and vertical directions of a color,my submission-->175928516, I can't pass the test. But when I only judge the corresponding direction of a color, it passed,my submission-->176020169 Can someone tell me why

    Look at the title,some horizontal rows have been painted red, and some vertical columns have been painted blue.

    Consider this case

    Answer : 'R' Output : 'B'

    I think the answer should be R, as it has the occurrence 8 consecutive times in a row. Please tell, why are there so many messages related to this?????

      Because many of us just checked whether the entire row is same color rather than checking entire row is Red Or Not. This also follow for column also.

    when the input array is 2 6 10 15 your output is 0 because when you reach 6 the gcd will be 1 but actually there is no coprime number between 6 , 10 , 15 but it is true that their gcd is 1 The correct output should be 5 by taking 2 and 15

    As per your solution I suggest you to have a read on Time Complexity Analysis It would be helpful for you to understand why your code is getting TLE

    Instead of keeping track of every index , you can consider the values of the array elements , that can go up to only 10^3 . Now , if you run two for loops , then time taken O(10^3*10^3) and for T=10 test cases , O(10*10^3*10^3) = O(10^7) [neglecting time complexity for __gcd(a,b) stl ].

flamestorm is the solution of bonus of problem C like this :

we go through each row except the ones with full red then check whether if a column is painted blue whether it is painted red in any of the previous rows and if a column is painted red whether it is painted blue in any of the previous rows and if a column is white whether it is painted blue in any of the previous rows; If any of these three happens then input grid is invalid otherwise valid

Is it correct ?

Hey flamestorm,

In problem C, the valid input must contain exactly one of theses situations:

1- Have one or more rows full of R's

2- Have one or more columns full of B's

otherwise, the input is invalid

Is it correct ?

    Well, those are a part of the conditions, but there seems to be more invalid cases to consider. The following is one example.

    .B.BB...
    .B.BB...
    .B.BB...
    RBRRBRRR
    RBRBRRRR
    .B.BB...
    .B.BB...
    .B.BB...

      I don't see any reason of downvoting him , he made a correct point.Maybe he has bad record in past in terms of commenting & posting but that doesn't have any relation with this,And why am I saying this? I am saying this because we all make mistakes in life ,doesn't mean we can't move forward

In $$$C$$$, why didn't they put $$$n$$$ and $$$m$$$ $$$(1$$$ $$$\le$$$ $$$n,m$$$ $$$\le$$$ $$$1000)$$$ or something like that?

I think when $$$n=m=8$$$ problem is more like Div.4 $$$B$$$ problem, this could make problem $$$C$$$ little harder, just as hard as a Div.4 $$$C$$$ should be.

    I don't think constraints matter at all in C ,n,m<=1000 doesn't make any difference in solution

In Problem B, the checker log is telling me that I gave a wrong answer in test case #2 while my answer is the same as the output. As you can see in the submission, the 25th token is correct. Am I missing something? 176210112

    Your code is dereferencing the value of $$$a[n]$$$. This is undefined behaviour, and may have caused a WA any moment.

In problem 1742D, I am getting my 1st test(5th array) wrong which is 31 instead of 10, also i don't know why 10 is the answer for the fifth array, as 15 and 16 are coprime also.

For Solution D

We just have to store the value of index to the key of the vector as the for loop is progressing it generally stores the largest index value.

for(int i = 1; i <= n; ++i) { int x; cin >> x; id[x].push_back(i); // we can actually store id[x]=i+1; }
