15 Days of Learning SQL – Hacker Rank Solution


Julia conducted a  days of learning SQL contest. The start date of the contest was March 01, 2016 and the end date was March 15, 2016.

Write a query to print total number of unique hackers who made at least  submission each day (starting on the first day of the contest), and find the hacker_id and name of the hacker who made maximum number of submissions each day. If more than one such hacker has a maximum number of submissions, print the lowest hacker_id. The query should print this information for each day of the contest, sorted by the date.

Input Format

The following tables hold contest data:

  • Hackers: The hacker_id is the id of the hacker, and name is the name of the hacker.1458511164 12adec3b8b ScreenShot2016 03 21at3.26.47AM
  • Submissions: The submission_date is the date of the submission, submission_id is the id of the submission, hacker_id is the id of the hacker who made the submission, and score is the score of the submission. 1458511251 0b534030b9 ScreenShot2016 03 21at3.26.56AM

Sample Input

For the following sample input, assume that the end date of the contest was March 06, 2016.
