Sort by:

For an easy difficulty. The level could be 1 or 2.

For a medium difficulty. The level could be 2 or 3

For a hard difficulty. The level could be 4 or 5.

It depends on how many people attempted the problem. Or how many people got it correct and incorrect.

I see. For the first one, you hadn't selected any topic. That's why there are very less views.

What difficulty you had selected for the problem? Is it optional?

I haven't selected any level.

When creating a problem, you should select a suitable topic.

After selecting the topic, you are able to choose a difficulty(easy,medium,hard).

Hard difficulty is unavailble

- 10 months, 2 weeks ago

You need to reach at that level . :)

- 10 months, 2 weeks ago

Ok but i am still confused

- 10 months, 2 weeks ago

Keep solving problems. When you will reach at level 4 or 5 in a topic, you can select a hard difficulty in that topic.
