For instance, the TL of a problem is 3 seconds, but my submission runs in 16.97 and gets AC.
It’s not for problem, it’s for only one test. In problem can be for example ten tests, then summarized TL will be 30 seconds. I don’t know how is in this particular problem, how many tests for example and it’s not so simple but its only example.
Thank you for a fast response!
I am talking about this problem. It seems like there are 10 tests, so if I understood correctly the sum of times of execution on each test should be <= 30 seconds. But that means that if there is only one worst case test a program can run much more than 3 seconds and get AC.
No, each test must finish in 3 second and after that, time is summarized. If any of test overtime TL [not finish in 3 sec] immediately will be stoped by SPOJ and after run all test, result will be TLE.
Thank you! I got it.
