Why weren't the submissions for this problem checked during the contest?

    I'm just curious to know what the reason was.

    @dalwise One of the reasons is to add some mystery when the final scoreboard is revealed. The second reason is many contestants become too reliant on the "expected answer" provided by the judge (when you get incorrect submission result). Delaying the judge result until after contest ends will make you think more, eg: Did I consider all edge cases? Is my solution efficient enough to pass the test cases with the given constraint?
