Can someone please help me out with this?

=========================================

  1. how is this penalty calculated in the given picture?

  2. what does the column with delta sign means? some contestants have that as blank others have a positive value.

  3. if i am doing a wrong submission on code forces than which of the two am i getting ? time penalty or points penalty ?

  4. is time penalty overall(on my total time for all the problems) or is it just for the particular question on which it was given.

Hello, I will answer each question:

1) The penalty is calculated as the time spent for all the problems you solved (You can add 1+3+8+11+15+18+36 and it will give 92) + 10 minutes penalty for each wrong submission 2)This is a prediction of how many points a contestant will gain or lose after the round. Some of them are with "?" because they are unofficial participants. 3)Time penalty in this case and points penalty in usual Div2/Div1 rounds 4)It is overall

I hope you understood!

      The one in the image; seems like a div-3 style contest (or educational round). Here there is no points penalty. only time penalty.

          You get +10 mins added to your total submission time for each wrong verdict you receive.

            Thank you for answering, one more thing, when my solution gets accepted in one go then why do I still receive penalties?

              its the time you have taken from start of contest to get accepted in mins, for each problem it will add in penalty and any wrong submission will cost you 10 more mins if you get accepted on that problem afterwards.(if your do wrong submission and problem is not accepted at end then it will not be added)

    why do sometimes people with more number of wrong submissions appear just above a person with less or no wrong submissions in the standings table? (both have same questions correct, done after same number of minutes) eg A problem done after 10 mins

      If you say finish the first 5 problems in 10 minutes but have like 20 wrong answers (so something like 250 penalty), and another person submits them all around the 2-hour mark (so something like 600 penalty), then the first person will be still be higher, even though they had 20 wrong submissions, just because they finished them all faster and had less penalty overall.
