I initially gave this kudos but rescinded them as a result of your C and D explanations. I am looking for more than what was provided. Please explain each answer as though someone believes it to be correct. If someone believes C is correct, your explanation does not help them. This is why I took the kudos away. For example, (E) at least explains that it is a different company, which is why we do not care. This is good.

nightblade354 Oh ok. Will try to explain more in detail for the upcoming questions.

Thanks for the reply and for taking time out to go though each and every post on the CR questions for the competition.

Hi, I am sorry, I got yesterday 31 timer, but was not awarded with 50 points in the competition. Is there any chance to recheck my timers? I was taking timers 15-20 minutes before the start of daily competition + 7 hours, which I believe is within 1 day range.
Please could you advise if I need to take any action?
Thank you

Hi RusskiyLev , I fell for the same mistake.

the 24 hours of the 30 questions doesn't start with the daily competition.
the daily competition starts at : 8AM PST
the daily count for the 30 questions starts at : 10PM PST or 11PM PST (95% sure it resets at this range)

Hi, Mahmoudfawzy83,

I actually started at 7AM PST and finished my 31st question at 1PM PST what means that it was in 1 day count. That was my concern.

RusskiyLev

You can go to "my error log" --> "error log stats" and see how many questions have counted the program on that day.
Besides note that you have to use timer between 6 secs to 6 minutes, if you don't satisfy this constraint your taken timer wont be counted

Hi, LevanKhukhunashvili,

Thanks, I have just had a look and it appeared that I was not able to deliver the required baseline of 30 timers per day for two days in a raw. It appears that 5 questions which were tried in the game timers competition, are not counted actually in the total day score. I was thinking that they are, and had exactly 30 questions in my pocket. In reality it was only 25.
Should not these questions be counted as well?

Yes, questions from RC are not counted and a few questions from DS/PS/CR/SC are not counted. So I agree with LevanKhukhunashvili that we need to verify what are counted in error log

As I do 30 times only in Quant, I cant say competition quant questions are counted or not, but I've observed error log counts 2 competition verbals.
But anyway I take 33-34 questions for "timer" to be on the safe margin

Thanks, LevanKhukhunashvili, I now also check my results via Error Log Stats to be on a safe side and try my best for achieving top 10.

komals06, just because you answer the question correctly does not guarantee that you will receive kudos. Although the standard varies between moderators, my baseline is that you must provide an explanation for each answer choice. Further, the explanation must be able to help someone who believes that the wrong answer choice is the correct one.

All you said was "Supports". I need more than this if I am to give kudos. Look at other posts for reference. If I believe E is correct, for example, how does your post help show me where I went wrong?
