Rankings, Challenges and Laddus

So, I started with CodeChef about a fortnight ago, and took part in the May Lunchtime Challenge (Division 2 : https://www.codechef.com/LTIME84B). I was only able to solve 2 questions tho [https://www.codechef.com/LTIME84B/problems/LOSTWKND, https://www.codechef.com/LTIME84B/problems/WWALK]

After that i got a 2-star rating, along with a global rank and a junior rank https://www.codechef.com/users/wickedknight

Can someone explain about this junior rank thing? is it like below 18 or something?
Also, do only Long Challenges, cook-offs and lunchtime give you rating or other specific contest also?

and jbtw, what are laddus in codechef, how do we earn them and what are they for?

Hey @wickedknight ,
So whenever you start participating in contests in codechef it automatically gives you a 1500 rating 2 Star also the more you participate and depending on the number of problems you solve in each rated- Lunchtime, Long Challenge or Cook Off contest your rank increases or decreases.

Laddus are a reward which you get when you come in top 20 in the contests
