Beautiful Partitions Codechef Solution

One more thing to add, don’t directly look for the solutions, first try to solve the problems of Codechef by yourself. If you find any difficulty after trying several times, then you can look for solutions.


Sidaga calls a sequence beautiful if the sum of elements of this sequence is strictly positive.

Kaspers gave Sidaga a sequence A1,A2,…,ANA1,A2,…,AN and asked him to partition it into exactly KK non-empty contiguous subsequences such that each element of AA belongs to exactly one subsequence and all KK subsequences are beautiful.

Sidaga is getting ready for his wedding – he is busy learning how to dance, so he cannot solve this problem. Can you help him?


  • The first line of the input contains a single integer TT denoting the number of test cases. The description of TT test cases follows.
  • The first line of each test case contains two space-separated integers NN and KK.
  • The second line contains NN space-separated integers A1,A2,…,ANA1,A2,…,AN.


For each test case, print a single line containing the string "YES" if it is possible to partition AA into KK contiguous subsequences or "NO" otherwise.

If it is possible to partition AA, print a second line containing KK space-separated integers B1,B2,…,BKB1,B2,…,BK denoting the sizes of the subsequences, where 1≤Bi1≤Bi for each valid ii and B1+B2+…+BK=NB1+B2+…+BK=N. The first B1B1 elements of AA belong to the first subsequence, the next B2B2 elements belong to the second subsequence and so on.

If there is more than one solution, you may print any one.


  • 1≤T≤1,0001≤T≤1,000
  • 1≤K≤N≤5⋅1051≤K≤N≤5⋅105
  • 0≤|Ai|≤1090≤|Ai|≤109 for each valid ii
  • the sum of NN over all test cases does not exceed 5⋅1055⋅105

Example Input

4 2
2 -1 1 3
2 2
1 -1

Example Output

1 3


Example case 1:

In first case, there are more than one options. Another such valid option is {2,2}.

In second case, it is not possible.
