@msh210 no idea but i think they should abbreviate clue-writing with just a C and call it CCCC

the c4 could be a double def for CREDITED (if you're credited you're acknowledged, or having a stated of indebtedness) but i don't think that's the intended parsing
the intended one i think is C(RED)ITED &lit., because if you owe money you're in the red
@Ankoganit ^
5:33 AM
@Jafe that is indeed correct
CCCC: Maybe AlphaZero's got onset of Down syndrome (4, abbr.)
@Ankoganit Are you a Bengali?
If yes so am I.
@RajorshiKoyal yeah
Are you from Kolkata?
I'd rather not get too specific about my location, sorry
5:44 AM
I am actually seeking some help about a couple of topics in reasoning for Bank PO
Please join the room that I created.
It would be actually easier for me to have a record of the questions.
@Jafe AIDS=AI'S containing D(own)
ooh, an abbreviation
@RajorshiKoyal I can try, but I'm not great at these; also, I'm doing something in another tab, so don't expect super prompt responses
No problem take your time.
6:20 AM
@Ankoganit that's correct
CCCC: Perturbed, abnormal or weird (7)
6:36 AM
@Ankoganit WORRIED*
A triple def, nice :)
only perturbed means worried i think
@Sid Can we get in touch once in the chatroom reasoning for bank PO?
@RajorshiKoyal sorry. I have an exam in a few hours. I will be a bit busy until the end of this month
Sure..So sorry to disturb you. All the best for your exam:-)

Danke :)

Q: Generalization of the two-surgeons-two-patients-and-two-gloves puzzle

melfntThis is the original puzzle with $n=2$. I recommend solving it before this one to get acquainted with the mechanisms. There are $n$ patients in an hospital (let's call them $p_1 \dots p_n$), each of them need an operation of by $n$ different doctors (let's call them $d_1 \dots d_n$) -- so $n^2$ o...

Q: Create a folder using only the mouse

melfntYou are a programmer, you are on your way home from your boring work when suddenly a psychopath hits you on the head, kidnaps you and brings you to their secret den.

not sure if I should flag, close, or both
blatantly off-topic anyways
I was considering a custom close-reason of "blatantly not about puzzles in any way" but am not sure if I should even engage in that way?
I just closed it. Oddly, the user in question seems to be a "normal" user on other SE sites.
well, actually just on Stack Overflow
if they continue posting junk we can take more vigorous action :-).
Four downvotes will kick it off the front page and decrease visibility. (Somehow I expect they will want to argue in comments)

Q: A series of strange codes

Jake FullerI made this code series for my computer science friends--they had fun solving it, and one of them told me I should put it up in this site, so here goes. The end of the code is rather unexpected! Each code has clue for the next one--the first code is easy so that shouldn't be a problem. (if you re...
