Can the TA help me with what I am missing in this approach?
Hey @tanujsharma1412 Your code is O(N^2) complexity and hence fails for the performance case.
Optimize your code to Linear time(expected complexity for this based on the given constraints) so that all the test cases will pass.
It has been explained numerous times in multiple sessions that only write code if you are sure you have got the optimal solution that satisfies the given constraints.
Encourage you to understand the relation between constraints and expected complexity based on the constraints.
Hint for this problem: Try greedy approach.
