They appear to measure “shortest solution” in terms of fewest instructions, not least movement.

also, the "shortest solution" is wrong for the last one.

edit #1: same for number 4.

edit #2: and number 5.

Spoiler:
number 4, 6 instructions instead of 7: { { forward, forward, right } loop 4 times, left } loop 3 times

number 5, 5 instructions instead of 6: { { forward, right } loop 10 times, left } loop 18 times

number 6, 5 instructions instead of 6: { forward, right, forward, forward } loop 11 times

there's a solution in 4. (hint: you're doing something 3 times)
