Take a simple example, the numbers are {1,2,3}.

You code prints 1. But the answer is 2.

You can solve it by taking the numbers as an array of length 3.

int a[3]; cin>>a[0]>>a[1]>>a[3];

you can first sort the array using the sort function in c++ stl, then print the second element. Here is what I did:-


using namespace std; int main() {ios_base::sync_with_stdio(false);

cin.tie(NULL); cout.tie(NULL); int t; cin>>t; while(t--) {int ar[3]; for(int i=0;i<3;i++) cin>>ar[i]; int w=sizeof(ar)/sizeof(ar[0]); sort(ar,ar+w); cout<<ar[1]<<"\n"; } return 0; }
