This file is to validate that the input sequence is correctly generated according to the constraints in the test-case input files.

You should see this on the http://campus.codechef.com/files/stderr/<SUBMISSION_ID> page, at the bottom.

SUCCESS on all Test-cases tells that the sequence generated is correct.

Ensure that the validation is written as explicitly as possible so that no edge case misses the pattern and everything is covered.

How is this useful, can you explain it a bit please?

Hey @D-Aman-S,
This test file validation template can be used to verify if your test cases are well-written and formatted correctly as per the constraints of your question, It can be used to check things like if the numbers are within the defined range, if the whitespace and linebreaks are correct, etc.
