Because the Sololearn quiz is timed and HTML questions are quite easy compared to other quiz questions where a question will probably need more time than the Sololearn quiz provide. hTML question can all be answered within few seconds.

Because HTMl is a markup language, not much thinking is required, so the HTML challenges are easier than the others. Easier questions = more correct answers = more XPs for answer bonuses.

Dont understand yet. What is the goal on winning challeges? I dont think, it show that a person is a good coder. Helps it to do your projects? Think no. It a kind of fame i guess. Fame in Sololearn... Same for likes on code. Sometimes I m wondering why 2 lines of code "hello world" got 150 likes. Buyed likes? Hello world is not better, more funny or more smart with 150 likes. It shows, likes are not showing code quality. Thats sad.

HTML is pretty much a test of memorization. I can tell the answer by, for example, by looking at who made the question, or the given options, instead of actually looking at the question itself. That gives way for easy XP, so why not?

Because most often they start learning HTML in Sololearn, and first of all they choose HTML to compete and not lose. This is not bad, not everyone wants to learn other languages. p.s. I know, HTML is not a programming language.

I am a HTML challenger. I will tell you my opinion. First HTML challenges are much more easier than other coding languages challenges (my opinion) Second it takes less time to do it. Third I don’t really need to do math😂 Finally I am more focus in Web developement.

Well, I can speak from a beginner perspective, I simply don't know any other language yet. A lot of us who only started learning to code, first start with basic HTML and CSS, and only later move to real programming languages like JS or Python. It's just an easy first step for beginners. And I don't do challenges in languages for which I haven't yet finished a course, because I think that would just make me confused 🤪🤓. Challenges are, I think, more for practicing what you learned, than for learning a new language. 🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈

some of them did it for xp, some of them for fame. learning in-depth html won't make you a programmer: it doesn't teach you algorithmics, about data structures, how the memory is used. html describes the skeleton of a web page. getting xp by exploiting challenges in html won't get you a job in software development. understanding programming concepts will. building projects that demonstrate your skills will. if you don't understand a concept don't worry, be happy ... cause when you will you'll have an advantage in front of those that said it is too difficult. winning xp easily might give you dopamine, but grasping a concept will give you knowledge and on the long run that is what you need. i hope you won't compare yourself with others, definitely not on xp, and you'll start learning for which this platform is about.

Bcos there is no calculations in HTML challenges, easy to remember no thinking needed. If you want real challenges go to C++ or other programming languages. I think HTML challenges has no benefits except XPs. It is repetition of what you already know.
