**15.** What is the Balinski-Young Impossibility Theorem?

To determine

What is the Balinski-Young Impossibility Theorem?

**Given Information:**

Balinski-young imposibility

**Concept used:**

The Balinski-Young impossibility theorem states that any apportionment method either will violate the quota rule or will produce paradoxes such as the Alabama paradox.

**Calculation:**

The Bainski-young's impossibility theorem states that there is no existence of appointment method that both satisfies the Quota rule and is free from any paradoxes of apportionment...
