t = 0 s: I am marking [0, 0.5] #0, [0.5, 0.75] #-1, [0.75, 0.875]
#-2, ...
t = 0.5 s: I am marking [0.5, 0.75] #0, [0.75, 0.875] #-1, [0.875,
0.9375] #-2, ...
t = 0.75 s: I am marking [0.75, 0.875] #0, [0.875, 0.9375] #-1,
[0.9375, 0.96875] #-2, ...
...

Which segments have been marked #0 after 1 s?
