If you do not your send your email with this subject line, your email will be ignored.

If you can’t solve any of the tasks, no problem. Show us what you did to try to solve the problem and what road blocks you encountered. This will help us understand how you tried to solve the problem. You will not be overlooked because you could not solve the task. We are interested in how you tried to solve the task.
