Answer of testcase: "a", "c", ["a","b","c"]

  • 0

    Input: "a", "c", ["a","b","c"]
    Output: 1
    Expected: 2

    According to the problem description, I could change "a" -> "c" and the length turns out to be 1.
    I am confused by the expected answer... Did I miss something out?

    As one shortest transformation is "hit" -> "hot" -> "dot" -> "dog" -> "cog",
    return its length 5.

    The length of the list is the number of elements, not the number of changes. Since there is "a" and "c", the answer is 2.
