Winner in Exercise

**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 2^{n}^{d}, 4^{t}^{h} choice becomes 3^{r}^{d} ,In the table WSTR radio station never got 1^{s}^{t} position therefore it is eliminated as new preference schedule shown in table below,
