I have been uploading video editorials(B, C and D mostly) for Div-2 and Div-3 rounds. The videos are generally updated within 5/6 hours after the contest ends. This blog will contain all the video links. It will be updated after every contest gets over and the videos are uploaded.

Round 645:

Educational Round:

  • Problem DLink (N log^2 Approach) (Binary Search + Fenwick Trees)

  • Problem DLink (N log N Approach) (Binary Lifting on Fenwick Trees)

Round 643:

Round 642:

Round 641:

Round 638:

Educational Round #86:

Round #637:

Round #636:

Round #635:

Round #633:

If you feel I can improve in any aspect, please drop in your valuable advice below. Please do-not expect me to make editorials on Div2-E or above because I solve it sometime during the contest hours due to the time constraint.

P.S: I never posted this, because I doubted on myself whether I could do it for long or not, on whether people will understand the explanations or not.

It is the annual coding contest of Jalpaiguri Government Engineering College which is organized essentially for the starters so that they get a real taste of competitive programming at an early age(I meant their year of study XD).

The contest is based on ACM-ICPC style.

Given 2 Linked Lists containing single digit as data representing number with most significant digit at head and least significant at the tail return the addition of both.

The solution must not reverse the given linked lists and do it in O(n) time complexity and constant space complexity(Recursive solution will take O(n) space because of stack).

For example:

9 -> 3 -> 2 -> 2 ->


3 -> 4 -> 8 -> 3 ->


1 -> 2 -> 8 -> 0 -> 5 .

Can anyone help me out ?
