    Hi Dhivya,

    Majorty works on the concept of more then 50% but Plurality works on the concept of largest block of people but not necessary 50%

    See the example below , for Mejority out of 6 , 4 people voted yes where as for Plurality out of 6 , 3 said yes which is = 50 % said yes and 2 said No while 1 wasn't sure . So here we will look at the largest group of people who voted yes . Equation can be like - 40% said yes ; 30% said No ; 30% not sure , so in this case we will go with group which scored 40%.
