Hello !! I wanted to ask what is the meaning of the 4-digit number with an alphabet at the end of it that is written in the ' # ' column on the problem set page , example : 1729C . I can notice that the alphabet tells whether the problem was 'A', 'B', 'C' etc in the contest. But I cannot figure out the meaning of the 4 digits.

Please clarify my doubt...

The 4-digit number is not necessary.It indicates the number of the contest and the alphabet character is the problem character in the contest for example -> problem A in a div2 contest -> then the contest number followed by A because it is problem A.

    To add to this, that four digit number can be used to filter submission based on contest in status filter.

The number: number of contest

The character: the character of that problem

for example, 1729C means the third problem of contest 1729
