I have never WA#16.
I only  have several MLE's before AC.

You have a cycle where you are calculating cnt for q.
The limit is wrong.
i<n is wrong.
i<m is correct.
Because of m is number of edges not n.
I changed n to m in your code and got AC again.

Thanks Mahilewets!!! Is your idea same or not ?

Idea is the same.
I was getting MLE because of critical  mistake in find_set.
There was an iterative implementation. My iterative function was equivalent to :
return (par[x] == x) ?  x : par[x] =find_set (x) ;

The good part is
Initially I made such mistakes incredible often
But after only few months of regular basis practice
Such blunders almost completely disappeared
