First of all, I would like to point out that you are very pretentious and that you are looking for problems that don't exist just to prove to yourself that you are smarter than others, which is actually not the case :)
A piece of advice, come down to earth.
Just because you get stuck on an ex maths test or something like that doesn't mean you have to yell at me. If you need help I can help you if you want :)

1/ It's a mistake on my side, I'm on an IPad so I didn't execute all of these scripts.
2/ The update method is used by several versions of Python while the | operator was only introduced in Python 3.9
3/ I don't want to comment, you're looking for problems where there are none, it's not because there is a shortcut for this case that it's the same everywhere.
4/ You keep looking for problems where there are none. I compare two methods that give the same result, I don't look at how they get there.
5,6,7,8,9,10/ There are no problems, you just want to shout :)
11/ I wasn't clear in my wording, but I will rephrase it as you told me.
12/ I didn't test it by myself, but it's a site to prepare IOI that says it.
13,14,15.1/ Again, there are no problems.
15.2/ It's another method indeed, it's even the one I use, but I wanted to keep it simple in my post which is aimed at beginners.

PS: I will delete our discussion in 24 hours so that I leave you the time to read, but it does not disturb the others (I modified the problem of the range and the unpack)

So, you can just delete what I've written? It's nice to know that. I'll have to be more careful in the future. :-)

I mean, your comment is only constructive on two points, it's more criticism so that you try to prove something to yourself the rest of the time

I understand that it's how you view it. We can discuss it too, but it probably won't be productive -- you're too closed-minded for that.

What was news to me is that you can just delete what I've written. Are you a moderator, or anyone here has absolute power over comments on their posts?
