Write a function that, when passed a list and a target sum, returns, **efficiently** with respect to time used, two distinct** **zero-based indices of any two of the numbers, whose sum is equal to the target sum. If there are no two numbers, the function should return *None*.

For example, *find_two_sum([3, 1, 5, 7, 5, 9], 10)* should return a single *tuple* containing any of the following pairs of indices:

- 0 and 3 (or 3 and 0) as 3 + 7 = 10
- 1 and 5 (or 5 and 1) as 1 + 9 = 10
- 2 and 4 (or 4 and 2) as 5 + 5 = 10

- Example case: Wrong answer
- Distinct numbers with and without solutions: Wrong answer
- Duplicate numbers with and without solutions: Wrong answer
- Performance test with a large list of numbers: Wrong answer

#### Screening Applicants: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Since we’re all biased and we use incorrect proxies, why not just outsource hiring to experts or recruitment agencies? After all, they’ve been screening people for many years, so they must know how to do it right?

Not really. I was surprised to discover that many experts disagree with each other. Everybody praises their pet method and criticizes the others. Many of these methods look legitimate, but are based on...
