Clarification from brilliant

I would like to know what is the selection criteria for a problem to get reshared by the best ofs Is it the number of people who reshare it or solve it or it must have a solution or what???

If a problem is interesting, it will get reshared. Problems that are convoluted, unmotivating or unclear, will often not make the cut.

To improve your problem writing, think about what problems you (or others) like, and why. Sometimes, phrasing a question in a short concise manner is good, while at other times a lengthy description provides more motivation. Choosing an appropriate title or image can also be extremely helpful.

There is no hard and fast rule regarding the number of people that have viewed / solved / liked / reshared. If a problem has been liked and reshared by different members, that tends to be an indication that many people find it interesting, and hence it will get reshared. I'm aware that harder problems will naturally have a much lower view / solve rate.
A good solution which explains the problem clearly would be of great value to our members, hence I prefer to reshare problems with solutions. I do email individual people about adding a solution to their problem, if I feel that many people would benefit from it. I would encourage you to add solutions to your problems, which also helps you double check that you have the correct answer.

It has a better chance of getting selected if it is reshared by a staff member...Also, the number of people who solved the problem is also taken into account (may be)

To clarify, neither of your conditions have a huge impact on the selection of a problem.

Until now whatever problems I have posted were not been able to solve by many so is that the issue

So that means the problem shouldn't be too difficult. But level 5 problems are supposed to be difficult

Yeah, but might I suggest you to write your problems using better LaTex? I dont know..It seems that your problems are too long to read...Make it short.

@Anish Puthuraya Are you taking about content in the problem.means the information is too long or font size is too big or do elaborate too much or make it too complicated . Well according to me I always find less information as mistakes while typing in my problems.
