C# Intermediate C# Polymorphism Virtual Methods

RepeatDetector.Scan doesn't detect repetitions.

What am I missing here? Nothing looks wrong here to me. Unless TTH wants a specific implementation?

SequenceDetector.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class SequenceDetector
    {
        public virtual bool Scan(int[] sequence)
        {
            return true;
        }
    }
}
RepeatDetector.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class RepeatDetector : SequenceDetector
    {
        public override bool Scan(int[] sequence)
        {
            for(int i = 1; i < sequence.Length; i++)
            {
                if(sequence[i] == sequence[i]-1)
                {
                    return true;
                }
            }
            return false;
        }
    }
}

You're really close! But instead of decrementing the value of the indexed item, decrement the index instead so you can compare with the previous item:

//              if(sequence[i] == sequence[i]-1)   // original
                if (sequence[i] == sequence[i-1])  // fixed

-_- Thanks... In the back of my mind I knew it was going to be something I did.
