It begins with a discussion of the simultaneous baseline approach and the pairwise approach. It then focuses on the claim that the intrinsic value of satisfying comparative desert increases with the group size. It also takes a look at the adjustments that can be made to the graphs and reviews the concept of variable steepness.
