Dumbest Solution Ever

In my last post I was talking about the contest which was organised. There was a particular question. This is the question –

E-Commerce R-Us recently discovered that their e-commerce site did not include a credit card number verification operation on the data that the user submitted for buying their software. The company decided to hire you and your team to develop a credit card validation program. You will be provided with a credit card number with the length varying from 13 digits to 16 digits. The algorithm is a simple mod 10 operation. Each number of the credit card is weighted by either 2 or 1. The credit card number must be zero-filled on the left to create a sixteen digit number, and then the pattern starts with 2, alternating with a 1. If the number multiplied by the weight results in a 2-digit number, each digit is added to the sum. The final sum with the check digit should be a multiple of 10.

Input Format: The user will provide you with a credit card number without spaces.

Output Format: The program will return “Valid” or “Invalid” depending on the success or failure of the check digit.


The question is so easy that you needn’t even solve it.

But now comes the main part, a team from 1st year submitted the following solution. Read it and laugh aloud !! 😀

void main()
long int a;
printf(“enter value of credit card”);
