    Looking to solve an election problem...

    Give an example of an election with four candidates A, B, C, D and satisfy the following:
    1) No candidate has a majority of the votes.
    2) C is the Condorcet Candidate, but has no first place votes.
    3) B is the Borda Count winner.
    4) A is the plurality winner.

    Im trying to figure this problem out with 100 voters on a preference schedule.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks!

    You posted this twice! Don't do that.

    The first thing you should do is state precisely what "Condorcet count", "Borda Count", and "plurality" mean!
