Prime Game February long challenge 2021 solution with code and explanation

Chef and Divyam are playing a game with the following rules:

  • First, an integer X! is written on a board.
  • Chef and Divyam alternate turns; Chef plays first.
  • In each move, the current player should choose a positive integer D which is divisible by up to Y distinct primes and does not exceed the integer currently written on the board. Note that 1 is not a prime.
  • D is then subtracted from the integer on the board, i.e. if the integer written on the board before this move was A, it is erased and replaced by AD.
  • When one player writes 0 on the board, the game ends and this player wins.

Given X and Y, determine the winner of the game.


  • The first line of the input contains a single integer T denoting the number of test cases. The description of T test cases follows.
  • The first and only line of each test case contains two space-separated integers X and Y.


For each test case, print a single line containing the string "Chef" if Chef wins the game or "Divyam" if Divyam wins (without quotes).


  • 1T106
  • 1X,Y106


Subtask #1 (5 points): Y=1

Subtask #2 (10 points):

  • 1T102
  • 1X6

Subtask #3 (85 points): original constraints

Example Input

1 2
3 1
2021 42

Example Output



Example case 1: Since D=1 is divisible by 0 primes, Chef will write 0 and win the game in the first move.

Example case 2: Chef must choose D between 1 and 5 inclusive since D=6 is divisible by more than one prime. Then, Divyam can always choose 6D, write 0 on the board and win the game.

Merge Two sorted array Without Extra Space

Problem statement-  Given two sorted arrays arr1[] and arr2[] of sizes N and M in non-decreasing order. Merge them in sorted order without using any extra space. Modify arr1 so that it contains the first N elements and modify arr2 so that it contains the last M elements.    Example 1: Input:  N = 4, arr1[] = [1 3 5 7]  M = 5, arr2[] = [0 2 6 8 9] Output:  arr1[] = [0 1 2 3] arr2[] = [5 6 7 8 9] Explanation: After merging the two  non-decreasing arrays, we get,  0 1 2 3 5 6 7 8 9.   Example 2: Input:  N = 2, arr1[] = [10, 12]  M = 3, arr2[] = [5 18 20] Output:  arr1[] = [5 10] arr2[] = [12 18 20] Explanation: After merging two sorted arrays  we get 5 10 12 18 20. Your Task: You don't need to read input or print anything. You only need to complete the function merge() that takes arr1, arr2, N and M as input parameters and modifies them in-place so that they look like the sorted merged array when concatenated. Expected Time Complexity:  O((n+m) log(n+m)) Expected Auxilliary Space: O(1

Apple division is problem is taken form cses introductory problem set.Let's Read Problem statement first. Problem Statement- Time limit:  1.00 s   Memory limit:  512 MB There are  n n  apples with known weights. Your task is to divide the apples into two groups so that the difference between the weights of the groups is minimal. Input The first input line has an integer  n n : the number of apples. The next line has  n n  integers  p 1 , p 2 , … , p n p 1 , p 2 , … , p n : the weight of each apple. Output Print one integer: the minimum difference between the weights of the groups. Constraints 1 ≤ n ≤ 20 1 ≤ n ≤ 20 1 ≤ p i ≤ 10 9 1 ≤ p i ≤ 10 9 Example Input: 5 3 2 7 4 1 Output: 1 Explanation: Group 1 has weights 2, 3 and 4 (total weight 9), and group 2 has weights 1 and 7 (total weight 8).
