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.

taking size of array as 50000
and size of tree as 99999 (=2*50000-1)
gave me SEGSEV error

after increasing the sizes my solution got ac. Im curious to know why this thing happend. Can anyone please help me.

getting wrong answer on test case 9 .... tried almost everything... any help on corner case ??

getting WA ....not TLE
using segtree....:(

used kadane algo for worst case scenario complexity is O(n*M), but TLE is the verdict !
how to improve this approach ? and also what is the limit of M ?

test cases are pretty weak.. I got 3 of my solutions passed by introducing several bugs :p .. so guys, even if your solution passes the test cases, make sure your algorithm and/or implementation is actually correct.

Source limit is 5kB?!
Weirdest thing ever

Except for fast I/O don't look for anything , u can solve it .... :)

without range of M how can we compute the complexity for this problem?

Took me 13 submissions to get AC ;)

Will the BIT work here?
