Canadian Computing Competition: 2011 Stage 1, Senior #2
Your teacher likes to give multiple choice tests. One benefit of giving these tests is that they are easy to mark, given an answer key. The other benefit is that students believe they have a one-in-five chance of getting the correct answer, assuming the multiple choice possibilities are
Write a program that your teacher can use to grade one multiple choice test.
The input will contain the number followed by lines. The lines are composed of lines of student responses (with one of
E on each line), followed by lines of correct answers (with one of
E on each line), in the same order as the student answered the questions (that is, if line is the student response, then line will contain the correct answer to that question).
Output the integer which corresponds to the number of questions the student answered correctly.
Sample Input 1
3 A B C A C B

Sample Input 2

Output for Sample Input 2
I find the problem almost impossible to understand. I've read the text three times already. Not a great job explaining it, I have to say.
I think I get it, but I'm not really sure. So the first line is a digit that represents the number of questions/answers that the students gives. The come the real answers which need to have the same number of lines. There's no mention at all about how these answers are generated or I'm missing something. Otherwise I'll have to assume that the correct answers are actually random.
First line of input: Number of questions in the test (N).
First N lines of input (not including first line): The answers the student gave.
Next N lines of input: The answer key (assume this is by default correct).
The question is asking you the number of answers the student got correctly. How these answers are generated does not matter.
