Concept used:

Since a number of college students were asked to rank four radio stations, therefore students' favorite radio station is selected by plurality elimination method, second choice becomes first, 3rd choice become 2nd 4th choice becomes 3rd.

Calculation:

Since a number of college students were asked to rank four radio stations, therefore students' favorite radio station is selected by plurality elimination method, second choice becomes first, 3rd choice become 2rd, 4th choice becomes 3rd, In the table WSTR radio station never got 1st position therefore it is eliminated as new preference schedule shown in table below
