I'm not taking offense, but the whole interpretation discussion (not started by you) is somehow ridiculous, fruitless. And a running gag found in too many threads.

IMHO there are three possible approaches:

  • 1. The monastery grants to everybody the power to read the questioner's mind. *

  • 2. Questions which are not mathematically clear are rejected and reaped.

  • 3. We post likely answers for the likely question.

    I'd rather stick with option 3.

    *) And the superpower to understand the real problem behind that mind. For instance I doubt that the OP was aware of possible edgecases like unsorted input or missing borders. BTW: I was.
