How is an answer's score calculated?

The complexity of the alernative definition in the answer is calculated in the same way the original definition's complexity was.
Then, Compare the original definition's complexity with the complexity of the answer, and the answer's score is the difference divided by 10.
In equation form:
answer score = (original definition complexity - new definition complexity) / 10

Try to rephrase and/or reword the definition to make it simpler, but still retain its meaning.

Note: For each word/post, each user gets points only for his single best definition of that word.
