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.

help me debugging this code !! I think it's failing on test case 9

shanto09: 2020-03-23 08:43:26

A problem worth solving!

For the newbies you can see explanation on my blog(read the comments for explanation), copy the code on your IDE & remove unnecessary comments it will become short- ""

solved after many attempts. Total satisfaction after solving this one

I solved it with Java & Segment Tree after 7 attempts.

1 based indexing has been used for query range inputs.

Getting a wrong answer on test case 9. Does anybody know where I could be going wrong

priyansh19077: 2020-03-02 17:58:55

We need to find the maximum value in the range given as a query right. Does that plus sign between the elements of the array signify anything or it's just there without any reason?

For WA in test case 9 try to check if you Merge function it's okay at the moment of answering the queries, it's not the same Merge( Ans, Current) and Merge(Current, Ans).

Learned segmented tree to solve this.
Learned the iterative approach.
You may learn this too, segmented tree is the answer for most range related tasks.
