I was going through https://datahack.analyticsvidhya.com/contest/datahack-hour-machine-learning-challenge/ and as I can see it is a imbalanced class problem. Is accuracy is a good evaluvation metric for this?

@meethariprasad No it is not. The challenge was to identify that it was an imbalanced class problem and then use appropriate metrics to validate your models.
