. While I am away on a conference, my husband Souptik plans to take the kids, Wrik and Oeshi, on an outing.
Wrik prefers to go to the park (P), whereas Oeshi prefers to go to the performance art studio (A). Each child
gets 5 units of utility from his/her more preferred activity and only 3 units from the less preferred activity.
Souptik gets 3 units of utility for either of the two activities.
To make a decision, Souptik plans to ask Wrik first for his preference, then to ask Oeshi after she hears Wrik’s
choice. Each kid can either choose P or A. If both of them choose the same activity, then that is what they
will do. If they choose different activities, Souptik will make a tie-breaking decision. As the dad, he has an
additional option: he can choose P, or A, or his personal favorite hiking (H). Each kid gets 1 unit of utility
from H and Souptik gets 5 units from it.
