I think description needs some fix, either in the challenge's constraint or in the example given :)

75x75px out of 100x100px is not 75%. 75x75=5625 out of 100x100=10000 is around 56% . Or, if you prefer, 75% from 75%. Why? Because we work in 2D.

So, which one is true?

a) clouds take 3/4 of the canvas. For example 100x75 out of 100x100 px canvas or i.e. 87x87px (roughly 75% of available space)
b) clouds occupy a rectangle which sides are 75% of canvas' sides
c) (other)

Second question: do the cloud should take exactly or at least or at most N% of the canvas?
