- Draw on a board $2019$ plus signs $(+)$ and $2020$ minus signs $(-)$. We perform a procedure as follows. We delete two arbitrary signs. If they are both plus or both minus, we will add back a plus sign. If not, we add back a minus sign. We do it for $4038$ times. What is the remain sign on the board?
