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.

my first in segment tree!

@admin I think you must add JAVA in the list of unsupported languages as well

@swas99 I managed to use Fast IO keeping the source limit<5000B but the time limit is too strict for java

can anyone help me with testcase 9? :( I don't know why its failing

@ kaushal101 always take the value in leaf node not max(0,A[L])

Finally solved it :) :) Feels good, use scanf , printf , cin and cout will not work even on using sync_with_stdio(false), will have to implement segment trees using pointers as array implementation would be complicated and memory consuming , finally don't give up, its a beautiful problem on segment trees will teach you a lot.

used scanf ,printf and segment trees with 4 values in the node still getting WA on test case 9.
When no overlap is returning value -15008 sufficient??
please help !!!!

Use scanf printf and shift operator instead of division by 2

WA on test case 9 , can anyone suggest some corner cases. I tried on all my cases.
