Hi, to change the Sequence Detector class to an abstract class add the word abstract in front the class.

public abstract class SequenceDetector

{

}

An abstract class inherits non-abstract methods so no need for override of the repeatDetector method and property. You will need to remove override from your method and property in the RepeatDetector class or set these to abstract within the abstract class.
