Check Algorithm Codechef Solution

Hello Programmers In this post, you will know how to solve the Check Algorithm 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.

Problem

One day, Saeed was teaching a string compression algorithm. This algorithm finds all maximal substrings which contains only one character repeated one or more times (a substring is maximal if it we cannot add one character to its left or right without breaking this property) and replaces each such substring by the string “cK”, where KK is the length of the substring and cc is the only character it contains. For example, “aabaaa” is compressed to “a2b1a3”.

Saeed wanted to check if the students understood the algorithm, so he wrote a string SS on the board and asked the students if the algorithm is effective on SS, i.e. if the string created by compressing SS is strictly shorter than SS. Help them answer this question.

Input

• 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 and only line of each test case contains a single string SS.

Output

For each test case, print a single line containing the string `"YES"` if the algorithm is effective on SS or `"NO"` if it is not.

Constraints

• 1≤T≤1001≤T≤100
• 1≤|S|≤1031≤|S|≤103
• SS may consist of only lowercase English letters.

Subtask #1 (100 points): original constraints

Sample Input 1

```3
bbbbbbbbbbaa
c
aaaaaaaaaabcdefgh
```

```YES
NO
NO
```

Explanation

Example case 1:

• The compressed string of “bbbbbbbbbbaa” is “b10a2”, which is shorter.
• The compressed string of “c” is “c1”, which is not shorter than “c”.
• The compressed string of “aaaaaaaaaabcdefgh” is “a10b1c1d1e1f1g1h1”, which is not shorter than “aaaaaaaaaabcdefgh” (both strings have length 1717).
