Does the winner in Exercise 24c satisfy the Condorcet criterion?

To determine

Does the winner in Exercise

**Given Information:**

Winner in Exercise

**Concept used:**

Create a table to keep track of each of the head-to-head comparisons.

**Calculation:**

Create a table to keep track of each of the head-to-head comparisons. Therefore shade the duplicate cell and the cell between the same recreate activities. This is shown below

Versus | Picnic in a Park | Water Skiing at a lake | Amusement Park | Riding horses at a ranch | Dinner Cruise |

Picnic in a park | Picnic in a park | Amusement Park | Picnic in a Park | Picnic in a Park | |

Water Skiing at a lake | |||||

Amusement Park | |||||

Riding Horses at a ranch | |||||

Dinner cruise |

Picnic in a park is favored over water skiing at a lake with

Water skiing at a lake is favored over Picnic in a park with

Therefore, the winner of this matchup is picnic in a park, so that name is place in the Picnic in a park versus water skiing at a lake cell.

Picnic in a park is favored over Amusement park with

Amusement park is favored over Picnic in a park with
