Greetings to everyone and welcome to the sixth single round match. I, Aditya Parthasarathy, am the problem setter for the same.
The contest will start on 13th January 2019 (Sunday), at 7 PM IST, and will last for 3 hours (will end at 10 PM IST). The theme of this contest will be #BlackMirror, an anthology series that revolves around a group of people's personal lives and how technology manipulates their behaviour. The problem statements are roughly based on the episodes of show (don't worry, there aren't any spoilers).
There will be 3 problems of varying difficulty of 100-200-250 points respectively. The penalty due to WA/CE/RTE/TLE solutions for problem will be applicable only after getting an AC solution. Scoreboard is updated with ICPC style of rankings where users solving more problems and earliest will be at the top. Time penalty of 20 minutes for each unsuccessful attempt will be the difference factor.
We do encourage referencing of online resources in case of any difficulty but any form of plagiarism will be met by strict action. The editorial and solutions will be uploaded after the contest has ended.
Special thanks to Omkar Prabhu and Rahul Sawantdesai for giving me the opportunity to set the problems and helping me testing the same.
Feel free to contact me or anyone in the CodeChef Campus Chapter team if any there's any kind of discrepancy found in the problem statements.
