Hi! I have a question regarding skipping problems: If I cannot solve a problem, is it okay to skip it instead of attempting it, getting it wrong, and losing points? Would not answering a question after a failed attempt be a cheap way to evade losing points?

Also, I would like to know how to find out how many points a particular problem is worth? Would one have to solve the problem and see the changes in total points in the "About" section of his/her Profile to find out how many points a particular solved problem is worth? Or is there a method which I could use to determine the point value of a problem before solving it?

Thanks, and have a nice day!

TopNewestIf you want to see how many points a problem is worth, hover your mouse over the text that says what level it is (ex: "Level 3"). I didn't really understand your question about skipping. How exactly is skipping defined?

I think @Yashas Ravi is telling about the quizzes in the courses.

I think you won't lose points if you get any problem wrongly attempted. So, I encourage you to attempt a problem if you definitely know the subject about it.

If you cannot solve a problem, then save it in the set and try to solve it later.
