# First whispered, then shouted

I'm working on a puzzle that seems to involve capital and lowercase letters. The arrangement of the letters seems to all be unique. There are no repeating phrases or sets. I wanted to know if my approach is correct, or if I should be rethinking everything.

Here is the initial passage

Find adjacent four letter groups, first whispered, then shouted

Here is a small snippet of the 'groups' in question.

The statement (I think) means that there will be four of these sets

and in this set, it needs to start off as lowercase, and then becomes uppercase.

The other idea that I had was that I need to be looking for groups of four letters that are lowercase, and uppercase, within close proximity to each other. I even went as far as color coding capital and lowercase groupings, but after a while, this didn't make much sense to me. I feel like I'm getting closer though.

• Welcome to Puzzling! Where is this from, and do you have permission to post it? – Deusovi Jan 19 '18 at 2:18
• It comes from this website. challenge.hiringsolved.com/42 and It says nothing about permissions – tisaconundrum Jan 19 '18 at 2:27
• FWIW this "challenge" was first posted in January 2014 (the winner to be first to complete it, no later than 2014-01-31) so I think it's fair to say it's no longer an ongoing contest. – Gareth McCaughan Jan 19 '18 at 12:22

i wrote some code to parse through the whole text blob and find 4 lowercase followed by 4 uppercase. i tried the link and it worked so its probably correct.

goodluck on the other puzzles!

• Jesus :P I was making it harder than was necessary 😫 – tisaconundrum Jan 19 '18 at 5:18
• well the next set looks more convoulted so goodluck with the challenge – casualcoder Jan 19 '18 at 5:19
• Completed the last challenge, built a little crawler that followed each number... spoiler: it's not that interesting to follow the breadcrumbs :P – tisaconundrum Jan 19 '18 at 5:50

Though kshishoo found it first, there's an even easier way of finding the answer:

I used Inspect Element on the page and grabbed the code from it. Then I went to RegExr and wrote a RegEx that matches 4 lowercase + 4 uppercase letters. The expression is as follows: [a-z]{4}[A-Z]{4}

And the result came out as follows:
