    a appreciable? or an appreciable? Shouldn’t the problem statement contain “a(n)” so as to make it neutral and not confuse the reader?

      You’re right, Nitin– it should definitely be “a(n)” in order to neither mislead nor guide the reader. It’s fixed with an annotation on the video now, but the slides will be fixed and the videos re-uploaded when we do the final quality assurance edits on the explanations for the product. Thanks!
