A Problem Set That Stunned! 

This Sunday night we saw some solid coding action from 9 PM to midnight as players from all around the world gathered for a crack at the November Cook-Off. The contest itself came equipped with a beautiful problem set and we had fun watching coders attempt to solve it. So, without any further ado, here’s a recap of everything you need to know! 

This contest, Division One players were expected to solve 7 problems. The pros seemed to love the problem Product Pain. By the end of the 3 hours, the problem had 77 correct answers and a 49.04 percent accuracy rate. Other popular problems in the Division were Non Decreasing Subsequence of size K and Guests like slippers, with both of them getting 30 successful submissions. Tough problems for the Division included Mega mu – 1 and Guess the row boy of which received merely 2 green ticks each. However, the toughest problem of the lot was Mega mu – 2 as no coder cracked this code.

The most popular problem of Division Two was Missing Sums as it got nearly 3k successful submissions. Problem Make it Divisible was a close second. The problem got 2240 correct answers and a 22.81 percent accuracy rate. On the other end of the spectrum, the difficult problems of Division Two were Good ranking and Mega Mu – 1. While 2 players walked away with a green tick for Good ranking, this time no one was able to solve Mega Mu – 1. 

Coming to Division Three, the most loved problem here was Odds and Evens. The problem received 5.5k+ green ticks and an 80.44 percent accuracy rate. Problem Disabled King also got its fair share of attention in the Division as it saw over 4,400 successful submissions. Non Decreasing Subsequence of size K was one of the tougher problems of the Division as only 2 players cracked the code. The toughest problem of the Division was Good ranking as no player got the correct answer to this one.

The ranklist for Division Three was truly a sight as the entire top 5 consisted of Indian players. sk_kr1 was the one who reigned supreme, with amaterasu001 close behind. The third and fourth positions were clinched by daredevil18 and horshy. Last but not least, the number five spot went to four2zero.
