I would read this as saying that the your program must understand
an input file of the format described above.

If your teacher has not given you some example file, you will need
to hand-make some files to use as input files to test your program.

BTW, your subject: line is not very good. All questions want "help".
Don't change the subject line for this discussion, but in future,
try to make it more descriptive. For example:
"what does this task specification mean?" Maybe.
