The statement makes sense.
Work Step by Step
The statement makes sense. The population paradox occurs when Group A loses an item to Group B, even though Group A's population increased by a larger percentage than Group B's population. This situation seems unfair to Group A, but it can happen in practice. State A loses a seat to State B even though State A's population increased at a faster rate than State B's population. In this case, the population paradox occurs, which can happen in practice although it seems unfair to State A.
