Same here. The hard part was understanding the problem. (It felt very much like "A train leaving SF at 50kph ..." word problems.) But after that the code wasn't so bad.
I think the possible "gotcha" here is that they do not want a reverse alphabetically sorted string, which, if you're not careful about the requirements, could be what you try to build and have it trip you up.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
