HackerRank - Maximum Draws Solution Python

HackerRank - Maximum Draws Solution Python

Jim is off to a party and is searching for a matching pair of socks. His drawer is filled with socks, each pair of a different color. In its worst case scenario, how many socks (x) should Jim remove from his drawer until he finds a matching pair?

Input Format
The first line contains the number of test cases T.
Next T lines contains an integer N which indicates the total pairs of socks present in the drawer.

Output Format
Print the number of Draws (x) Jim makes in the worst case scenario.


Sample Input


Sample Output


Case 1 : A pair of socks are present, hence exactly 2 draws for the socks to match.
Case 2 : 2 pair of socks are present in the drawer. The first and the second draw might result in 2 socks of different color. The 3rd sock picked will definitely match one of previously picked socks. Hence, 3.



import os
import sys

# Complete the maximumDraws function below.
def maximumDraws(n):
    return n+1

if __name__ == '__main__':
    fptr = open(os.environ['OUTPUT_PATH'], 'w')

    t = int(input())

    for t_itr in range(t):
        n = int(input())

        result = maximumDraws(n)

        fptr.write(str(result) + '\n')
