To be honest with you I don't like the way they phrase the question. "Auto" makes it sound like you do something and it automatically makes it continue incrementing until you tell it to stop. There is something you can do to your variables to make them go up by one or down by one every time you put these operators in your code. See this thread for an idea of what I'm talking about.
