How to find difficult question in Topcoder

Does the Topcoder has div 1 500 level > Div 2 level 500 > Div 1 level 250 as the difficulty level of questions in descending order ?
Can’t understand the difficulty level of their practise
Plz help in understanding how to distinguish easy questions from the medium and tough level question and vice versa

Normally the lower score has the easier level. For example, if there are 3 problems: 250, 500, 1000, the level of the difficulty is 1000 > 500 > 250.

Is this the descending order of the difficulty level ??

1000>500>250.

And for div1/div2 comparison, div2 500 is usually easier than div1 250, while div2 1000 is usually harder than div1 250 (but easier than div1 500).

Simple way to get at idea about problem difficulty is checking number of people who solved it during contest, and also minor stats like AC rate, time of fastest solution etc.
