Problem in understanding the candy question

  • 0

    There are N children standing in a line. Each child is assigned a rating value.
    You are giving candies to these children subjected to the following requirements:
    Each child must have at least one candy.
    Children with a higher rating get more candies than their neighbors.

    Here the rating is passed as a parameter to the function.
    But where is the information about children having the candies?
    I am referring to this particular line

    Each child must have at least one candy.

    How do we decide which child has how many candies initially?
