Chef at the Olympics Codechef October Long Challenge

Chef at the Olympics Solution

The Chef is at the Olympics. You are given the medal tally of N of the participating countries. You are also given Q queries, each represented by a single integer K. For each such query, you need to find the best possible rank country 1 can achieve if you are allowed to take any K medals (possibly of different countries) and change their color.


  • Countries are ranked lexicographically in order of their gold, silver, and bronze medals. If countries i and j have the same number of gold, silver, and bronze medals, then country i is considered to be ahead of country j if and only if i<j. There are no ties in the rank list.
  • Since the input-output is large, prefer using fast input-output methods.

Input Format

  • The first line contains T denoting the number of test cases. Then the test cases follow.
  • The first line of each test case consists of two space separated integers N and Q denoting the number of countries and the number of queries.
  • N lines follow. The i-th line consists of three separated integers G, S, and B indicating that the i-th country has won G gold medals, S silver medals, and B bronze medals.
  • Q lines follow. The i-th line line consists of a single integer K describing the i-th query.

Output Format

For each query, output on a single line the best possible rank of country 1.


  • 1≤T≤105
  • 1≤N≤105
  • 1≤Q≤105
  • 0≤B,S,G≤5⋅108
  • 0≤K≤1015
  • Sum of N over all testcases is at most 5⋅105.
  • Sum of Q over all testcases is at most 5⋅105.
