    Range applies to the full time span indicated, so if the fastest time was 1:02:03 and the slowest time was 3:05:07 then the time range is 2:03:04.
    If the fastest time was 1:30:40 and the slowest time was 2:20:30 then the time range is 0:49:50.

    In real world terms the range question is asking "how long did the person at the finish line with the stopwatch have to wait, between the moment the fastest runner finished, and the moment the slowest runner finished? How much time passed between the winner finishing and the last person finishing?"

    You have to do time math on the entire period of time, not just the hours/minutes/seconds components separately

    Can ye chuck a bit of markdown around the "" empty strings in If the given string is "" you will return "" so that it doesn't read like some accidentally escaped version of the phrase 'If the given string is "you will return"' ?

    Thanks for the tips, I haven't really done any programming in awhile so I'm quite rusty.

    Tip: When using interpolated strings or string.Format, you don't need to format your numbers by calling ToString; you can just pass the format in after a colon in the interpolated placeholder e.g. Convert.ToInt32($"{year:D4}{month:D2}{day:D2}");. hexNum could also have been formed with maths rather than string parsing (year*10000 + month*100 +day)

    In C# you can declare numbers in hex e.g. int valueCoffee = 0xCAFE instead of parsing from string

    Typo: should read "a is a superset of b"

    I fixed the description. Your comment also inspired me to make the siren sounds more prominent :)

    Tricky, a phrase like "the siren will go off" - does it mean it starts making a noise, or that it stops making a noise?

    LOL

    Side thought... How about parts:

    • Abdomen
    • Noggin
    • Thorax

    LOL at the cheese sandwich; very subtle

    It doesn't really matter which part you define as head and which part as body. The problem description states if you find 2 heads and 1 body, then it's 2 ants.. (If you find 2 heads and 2 bodies then it's 2 ants.. If you find 2 heads and 3 bodies then it's 3 ants.. etc)
