Q: substantial in this contest とはどういう意味ですか?
Q: What do you mean by "it's no contest" in the following sentence? Why do you think a author used colon? Why do you think a author used capital T after "C'mon"? "It's no contest: Apple - versus, say Exxon - is likable. C'mon, Think different." とはどういう意味ですか?
A: “It’s no contest” means that the winner is obvious - there was never any real competition. In this case, Apple is the clear winner.
The colon is to emphasize that Apple being more likable than a company like Exxon is what the author means by “it’s no contest.” It could have been a period and been correct, but the colon makes the two thoughts feel more connected.
I personally would not capitalize the T after C’mon, but I think the person did that because C’mon is a bit of a throwaway word, so the person is treating “Think” as the real beginning of the sentence.

Becuase people who are all good at the same thing are competing to see who is best.

Q: Which is correct?

She is runner-up at the latest contest.
She is the runner-up at the latest contest.
She is a runner-up at the latest contest.

A: None of these are grammatically correct, because you used the present-tense form to refer to the past.

The correct form would be:

"She was the runner-up at the last contest."

But if there was two or more runner-ups (a tie for second place) then you could say:

"She was a runner-up at the last contest."
