Exam Review A professor is preparing an extra review session the Monday before final exams and she wants as many students as possible to be able to attend. She asks all of the students to rank different times of day in order of preference. The results are given below.

a. Using the plurality with elimination method, for what time of day should the professor schedule the review session?

b. Use the Borda count method to determine the best time of day for the review.

To determine

**(a)**

Using the plurality with elimination method, for what time of day should the professor schedule the review session?

**Given Information:**

Office | Los Angeles | Newark |

Employees | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

**Concept used:**

Rankings | |||||

Morning | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

Noon | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

Afternoon | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

Evening | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

Number of votes: | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

**Calculation:**

Since each a professor is preparing an extra review session on the Monday before final exams and she wants as many students as possible to be able to attend. She asks all of the students to rank different times of day in order in order of preference is selected by plurality elimination method, second choice becomes first, 3^{r}^{d} choice become 2rd, 4^{t}^{h} choice becomes 3^{r}^{d}

To determine

**(b)**

Use the Borda count method to determine the best time of day for the review.
