Radio Stations A number of college students were asked to rank four radio stations in order of preference. The responses are given in the table below.

Use plurality with elimination to determine the students’ favorite radio station among the four.

To determine

Use plurality with elimination to determine the students' favorite radio station among the four.

**Given Information:**

Number of votes: | | | | | |

**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, 3^{r}^{d} choice become 2^{n}^{d} 4^{t}^{h} choice becomes 3^{r}^{d}.

**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, 3^{r}^{d} choice become 2rd, 4^{t}^{h} choice becomes 3^{r}^{d}, In the table ^{s}^{t} position therefore it is eliminated as new preference schedule shown in table below
