    Please give an example of a group profile such that Jean-Charles de Borda's count group consensus function violates Kenneth Arrow's Property 2 (Axiom 2) [Irrelevant Alternative]. As weights, please use 1N for first place, 1 N1 for second place, 1 N2 for the third place, ..., 11 = 1 for the last place, in the presence of N candidates, where the smaller weighted Borda number ranks higher. Note that after eliminating the irrelevant alternative, the first place has weight 1 N1 , the second place 1 N2 ..., the last place 1.
