You may be over-thinking it, task 2 is actually quite a bit easier than task 1. Some hints:

  • you only need one group
  • you don't need to name the group
  • the group needs to be anchored at the end (using "$")
  • the pattern doesn't need any specific length constraints
  • you don't need to "print" anything for either task
