How should the problem statements be formatted on Codechef


I am a new problem setter on CodeChef. I was uploading my first problem. I wanted to know, is there any guideline to be followed for the problem statement.

The problem statements should not have any ambiguity. Simple and correct usage of the English language is must.

Please take a look at problem statement template for information on formatting problem statements. To know more details, you can visit here.

NOTE: All problems statements must be saved in the ascii format as our system only recognizes these characters at the moment. Inclusion of any other special characters would cause an error within the system.
