Can you give more explain about the example?
say i start 1st assign. today -- now it'll take me 2 days to complete. once I start with one assign, I've to finish it first - then jump to the next assign.
Now for these 2 days, I couldn't 'start' the other assign. so i've to suffer given penalty for each assign. each day. that is = 4*2 + 1*2 + 2*2 + 5*2 + 2*2 .= Σt(1)*p
After 2 days, say I start the last assign. which will take 10 days to finish. so for each of these 10 days - the penalty will keep adding for those assigns. that I've not yet started.
this way I'll continue.
at the end, a particular amount of penalty will be accumulated.
I want that total penalty to be minimum.
there'll be many combinations - among all those, which one will give me minimum penalty?
hope it is clear
OK, I see now
It seems that these problems have multiple degenerate solutions. For example, problem 1 is solved by [1 5 2 3 4 6] or [5 1 2 3 4 6]. Problem 2 has 4 solutions.
if there exists more than one possible scenario, then the assignments are to be assigned based on their priority - meaning, 1st task should get preference over 5th.
similar is in the case of test suite 2 -- a3 should come before a6.
I think it should be ok then.
Please, Asif, add the example that you gave in the comments to the problem description. It will make the problem clearer.
