UVa 231 – Testing the CATCHER

Problem Link : https://uva.onlinejudge.org/index.php?option=com_onlinejudge&Itemid=8&category=24&page=show_problem&problem=167

Solution Idea:

This is a straight forward LIS problem. Just take input and calculate the Longest increasing sub-sequences and print the answer.
