1997 Canadian Computing Competition, Stage 1
Problem A: Sentences
Write a program which accepts as input a list of subjects, a list of verbs, and a list of objects, and produces all possible sentences which consist of a subject, a verb, and an object.
The first line of the input file contains a positive integer n which is the number of data sets which follow. For each of the n data sets, the data begins with three positive integers, one per line, each less than or equal to 20, which represent the number of subjects, verbs, and objects, respectively, which are provided. Following this line are the subjects, one per line in alphabetical order, the verbs, one per line in alphabetical order, and the objects, one per line in alphabetical order. The maximum length of any subject, predicate or object is 25 characters.
The output is to consist of all possible sentences which can be formed using one subject, one verb, and one object, and is to be output in alphabetical order with a period at the end of each sentence. The output for different data sets are to be separated by a single blank line.

Your program only works for one data set at a time. Please re-read the problem description.
since input size is small, nested loops will run in time
here is some psuedo code:
After looking over my code, I can't find anything. Am I missing something small, like no space after a period, or something like this?
I feel like I should be getting something like a 1 to 9 /10, if there was a problem with the algorithm.
Also, it doesn't appear to me that you've run your code on the sample input.
Alphabetical order is not the same as ASCIIbetical order. Note that the input is already given in alphabetic order.
