DE, which people speculate may be more difficult than CA, is not included in the results. But aside from omitting, DE, his conclusion is that CA is the hardest.

Not really addressing the point I was making, but okay.

I don't know of a study that gets at the point you were making. It is a valid one--those people skew the results. Just trying to show that despite that, it still is hard relative to others (possibly the hardest), but you seem to agree with that. I'll stop beating a dead horse.
