I notice that the example results in "The global maximum percentage of Female tobacco users in 2030 is predicted to be in Andorra (AND) at 42.3" and "The global maximum percentage of Female tobacco users in 2022 was in Nauru (NRU) at 48.1" have double white spaces preceding the final number. I want to make sure if I need to abide by the example exactly.

Hi, The number of white spaces is not relevant; I believe in auto-testing (for uniformity and fairness), but not auto-marking, because humans are much better at dealing with differences in the output that are actually not relevant. In particular, differences in spacing are not relevant; the main thing is that information being sought is present, or the error condition is caught and commented on. Cheers MichaelW 👨‍🎨
