Answer

Since Candidate B has the highest number of first-place votes, Candidate B is selected as the winner using the plurality method.

Work Step by Step

With the plurality method, the candidate with the highest number of first-place votes is selected as the winner. We can find the number of first-place votes for each candidate. Candidate A has 1200 first-place votes. Candidate B has 900 + 600 = 1500 first-place votes. Candidate C has 900 first-place votes. Since Candidate B has the highest number of first-place votes, Candidate B is selected as the winner using the plurality method.
