Google Kickstart 2021 Round A Solutions K-Goodness String Problem Charles defines the goodness score of a string as the number of indices ii such that Si≠SN−i+1Si≠SN−i+1 where 1≤i≤N/21≤i≤N/2 (11-indexed). For example, the string CABABC has a goodness score of 22 since S2≠S5S2≠S5 and S3≠S4S3≠S4. Charles gave Ada a string SS of length NN, consisting of uppercase letters and asked her to convert it into a string with a goodness score of KK. In one operation, Ada can change any character in the string to
