After swapping from Scanner to BufferedReader, my submission gets the java.util.NoSuchElementException. I am may be incorrectly using the BufferedReader (I am using the code provided at https://dmoj.ca/tips/), or if I have a mistake somewhere else in the program. I have read about this error on Oracle, but am still unable to figure out why it is happening, and cannot replicate the error in my program on IntelliJ. Any suggestion as to which sources I should read / or any test cases to try would help. Thank you! Edit: I fixed all the bugs and holy moly there were a LOT.

I believe you need to make a new String Tokenizer for each line of input, if you haven't done that already.
