Don't be so blunt, please. The problem description contains (at least) three stupid errors, which makes it quite hard to understand.
For examples, n=3, k=0, the apples are of weight 1, 2, 3, 4.
makes no sense; n should be 4.
If he eats apple #1, then he east total weight of 1, 3, 3, 3 when apple #1, #2, #3 and #4 are sweet respectively. This yields a solution of 1+3+3+3=13, beating 14.
The numbers are wrong and there is not enough explanation. It should read someting like: "If he eats apple #1 and then, if it's bitter, apple #3, the total weight is 1+4+4+4=13, beating 14."
The first line of input contains a single integer t(1<=t<=100), the number of test cases.
Case 1: 2
Case 2: 6
Case 3: 13
Case 4: 22
Case 5: 605
I guess you can spot the error.
Looks like the problemsetter was in great hurry to finish the description in time. He is a great problemsetter. I think his companion 'Elites' should have saved him for this blunders. (But who am I to judge. I never set a decent problem...)
