5
RTSSKAEAGE
GRSCAV
RGSSCAV

RUSSGAACEV JEGIITOOGR

or

1

RSAEIO

You are right, sample input is wrong and it should be like in your first case, but the input for the problem is correct, I solved the problem.

it says
the number of messages that are to be deciphered in the third line, and a ciphered text message in each of the remaining lines
which to me means that there might be 5 to decipher but there could be 6 following and they only want 5 of them deciphering ?

You are right, the description is not very clear in that point, but the number is exactly the number of following messages (my program would have entered a while(1) loop if there would have been more following messages). And there is no blank line as message.
