Sorry , I don't understand your meanning clearly.

1. Suppose, you have a contraction "AB" -> "A and B" and you meet in text string AB. According to the problem statement you should output "A and B" - not "A AND B". Note, that if the contraction were "Ab" -> "A and B" than you would print "A AND B", however.
According the problem, Each contraction may appear as listed, entirely uppercase, or capitalized (first letter uppercase, remaining letters as listed). The expansion should follow the same rule; if a contraction is uppercased, the expansion should be uppercased as well.
If I have a contraction "AB" -> " A and B"
when I input ab , I should output "a and b"?
AB, I should output "A AND B"?
Ab,, I should output "A and b"?
maybe I misunderstand the problem.
2. If you have two contractions "AB C"->"A B and C" and "AB"->"A and B" and analize string AB C D ... you shouldn't stop when you found match AB - you are to continue comparing because you will meet AB C which should be replaced as its contraction appear earlier in the input.
If more than one case applies, choose the earliest matching case in the list: "as listed," "uppercased," and "capitalized."
now we have two contractions.
1. "AB C" -> "A B and C"
2. "AB" ->"A and B"
iwhen I input AB C D, I search from 1 to C.
if some contraction matched , I used the rule?
Am I right?
Thx your reply
