We are truly overwhelmed with the response and participation of the contestants during Perplexed main round. We heartily thanks to all the participants for making this event successful. Perplexed! is such a learning platform which explores the dimensions of C language. Problems are so chosen and constrained such that for each problem there are many ways to solve it, but the best method is that with least constraints that actually tries for a specific concept of language C to be implemented.
