GSS1 - Can you answer these queries I

You are given a sequence A[1], A[2], ..., A[N] . ( |A[i]| ≤ 15007 , 1 ≤ N ≤ 50000 ). A query is defined as follows:
Query(x,y) = Max { a[i]+a[i+1]+...+a[j] ; x ≤ i ≤ j ≤ y }.
Given M queries, your program must output the results of these queries.


  • The first line of the input file contains the integer N.
  • In the second line, N numbers follow.
  • The third line contains the integer M.
  • M lines follow, where line i contains 2 numbers xi and yi.


    Your program should output the results of the M queries, one query per line.

The time limit is absurd. Still don't know whether I have some coding errors or my java is simply too slow to make it through.
edit: like really absurd, same code which gave me AC now gets TLE

Note to C# solvers: This is a really good problem to learn segment trees (don't use wikipedia as a reference, I recommend Unfortunately, there are some annoying little issues. Use StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries to avoid runtime error. Use string builder and a single Console.Write(). And just in case, beware a bug in the Mono compiler about invalid IL code generation (I got this when doing multiple assignment inside of a constructor, like PropA = PropB = value).
