Any (non-default) option which does not defeat the default option by its required majority ratio is dropped from consideration. a. Given two options A and B, V(A,B) is the number of voters who prefer option A over option B. b. An option A defeats the default option D by a majority ratio N, if V(A,D) is strictly greater than N * V(D,A). c. If a supermajority of S:1 is required for A, its majority ratio is S; otherwise, its majority ratio is 1. 3(a) V(A,C) = 69, V(C,A) = 31 3(c) A supermajority is not required for C, so its majority ratio is 1. 3(b) V(C,A) = 31, which is not strictly greater than 1 * V(A,C), so option C does not defeat option A by its majority ratio. 3 C is dropped from consideration.
