TULIPNUM - Tulip And Numbers

no tags 

Little Tulip recently learnt about how to  write numbers. So she wrote some numbers in a paper in a line. But she never wrote a number which is less than the prevous one.

Now she want to know how many different numbers are in a given range.

In short, you are given an array of N integers indexed from 1 to N, and q queries, each in the form i j, you have to find the number of distinct integers from index i to j (inclusive).


Input starts with an integer T (≤ 15), denoting the number of test cases.

The first line of a case is a blank line. The next line contains two integers N (1 ≤ N ≤ 10^5), q (1 ≤ q ≤ 10^5). The next line contains N space separated positive integers forming the array. Each of the next q lines will contain a query which is in the form i j (1 ≤ i ≤ j ≤ N).


For each test case, print the case number in a single line. Then for each query you have to print a line containing number of distinct integers from index i to j.



5 3
1 2 2 4 5
1 2
1 5
4 5

3 1
1 1 1
1 3

Case 1:
Case 2:

I think the input may be malformed. In Pascal, I got WA with readln, and AC with read.

1 dimensional dp and 200th came easy.....all credits @pulkitgulati:)

O! One of those problems where the author doesn't care if you have an optimal solution. He wants to test whether you can take input and print numbers faster -_-

Use fast io
same code tle with scanf
and took only 0.08 sec with with fast io

Whenever a problem setter sets a question with strict time limit, they must take care that the I/O format is not weird or at least there is no ambiguity in the I/O format. One needs to appreciate that fast input completely relies on the input format and creating troubles in that does not judge someone's coding abilities.

"never wrote a number less than the previous one".. DP :D

my code took exact 0.2 seconds !!!!

Have we to write "Case 1:" before output or just "1" ?

what is expected time complexity ? my complexity is O(n+q)

There is no blank line after 1st input..Avoid using sets or vectors in this problem,it will give TLE..
