- All the problems have same points alloted to them.
- Users are ranked according to the most problems solved. Ties will be broken by the total time for each user in ascending order of time
- The total time is the sum of the time consumed for each problem solved. The time consumed for a solved problem is the time elapsed from the beginning of the contest to the submission of the first accepted run. There is no time consumed for a problem that is not solved. Also note there is no penalty for wrong submissions.

Note: You can now "Code, Compile, and Run" your codes on our Online IDE.
However, if you are using any other online development environment, make sure that other contestants don't have access to your code. As a contestant, you are responsible for making sure others don't access the code that you submit. If you use Ideone, make sure to mark your submission "private" (not secret)".

21:45 IST: None of the problems in this contest have subtasks, and so you either get a score of 0, or 1. But some users seem to be getting a 'Partially Correct' verdict. We are investigating why this is, but you can assume that all such submissions are fully correct.
