Consumer Preferences A group of consumers were surveyed about their favorite candy bars. Each participant was asked to rank four candy bars in order of preference. The results are given in the table below.

Use the plurality with elimination method to determine the group’s favorite candy bar.

To determine

Use the plurality with elimination method to determine the group's favorite candy bar.

**Given Information:**

Rankings | ||||||

Nestle Crunch | | | | | | |

Snickers | | | | | | |

Milky way | | | | | | |

Twix | | | | | | |

Number of votes | | | | | |

**Concept used:**

Plurality with elimination method **Calculation:**

Since each participant were asked to rank four candy bars in order of preference is selected by plurality elimination method, second choice becomes first, 3^{r}^{d} choice become 2^{n}^{d}, 4^{t}^{h} choice becomes 3^{r}^{d}
