I'm going into grade 11 this fall and I have started to find competitive programming interesting. I try to participate in contests but I can't even make it past the first question on codeforces. It makes me feel so dumb.
I want to get good at this and I have been reading multiple articles on the internet (what prefix sum is, prime factors, sieve, binary search, etc) but whenever I go into these contests I stumble on all questions. Please give tips on how I can get better at comp prog. When I try to practice, either questions are too easy or too dumb. And I just don't know how I'll get better at this.
