let me know if u find any discrepancy
It seems that something is messed up. You didn't say how to score a suffix. If a suffix is scored with the same weight as a last name, then "William III" should score higher than 'William II' in problem 5. If the suffix is not scored at all, then 'william' should score higher than 'William II' or 'William III'. The same sort of problem occurs in problem 4.
if i remember correctly, suffix was supposed to be treated similarly to a prefix. [the 1st letter only]
I can confirm it. For suffixes, just the first letter counts. If it didn't william would be greater than William, since w > W (ASCII value).
