Canadian Computing Competition: 2021 Stage 1, Junior #2

A charity is having a silent auction where people place bids on a prize without knowing anyone else's bid. Each bid includes a person's name and the amount of their bid. After the silent auction is over, the winner is the person who has placed the highest bid. If there is a tie, the person whose bid was placed first wins. Your job is to determine the winner of the silent auction.

Input Specification

The first line of input contains a positive integer N, where 1 \le N \le 100, representing the number of bids collected at the silent auction. Each of the next N pairs of lines contains a person's name on one line, and the amount of their bid, in dollars, on the next line. Each bid is a positive integer less than 2\,000. The order of the input is the order in which bids were placed.

Output Specification

Output the name of the person who has won the silent auction.

      Instructions are very simple: you get the input for all the bids and output the person with the highest bid. If there are 2 or more bids that are tied for highest, output the person that came first with the highest bid.

      For the first sample, there are 3 bids: Ahmed with 300, Suzanne with 500 and Ivona with 450. Therefor Suzanne would have won because she placed the highest bid.

      Hope this helped :)
