I asked the same question last month…

#4

Literacy rate in India : 63.82%

Literacy rate in China: 94.3% + Highest population in world

Now if we simply calculate the probability, Chinese should be much better than rest of the world.

Here is the Top 20 from July Long by a country:

  • India 4
  • Japan 3
  • China 2
  • Poland 2 :slight_smile:
  • Slovakia 2
  • Romania 1
  • North Korea 1
  • Russia 1
  • Czech Republic 1
  • Switzerland 1
  • Australia 1
  • Ukraine 1

As you can see, there are not so many Chinese people here as you thought. The other fact is that the most Codechef users come from India, which at least statistically gives them an advantage in country ranking.
