1. Suppose Homer (i=1), Marge (i=2), Bart (i=3), Lisa (i=4), and Maggie (i=5) have to choose between two alternatives: Duff (x) and Butterfinger (y). Their preferences are as follows: Homer prefers Duff; Marge and Maggie are indifferent between the two alternatives; Bart and Lisa prefer Butterfinger.
