A waiting ticket always consists of the two numbers X and Y, but if one is to give the single most important number that determines the waiting status of a ticket, it has to be the number X. The number X is unique for this passenger and this journey, while the number Y can be same for two different passengers of the same journey at different times. The difference X-Y gives the number of passengers with waiting above this ticket that have cancelled their tickets till now for this journey. The rush on a given train on a given day can be determined by simply finding the maximum Initial waiting number that got allotted that day.
