The game matrix is the following:

C1 C2 C3
R1 3,2 2,1 1,a
R2 2,2 b,4 0,2
R3 c,d 3,2 e,4

a. For R2 to be strictly dominated by R1 we need a situation where for each strategy C1, C2, and C3, R1 offers a better payoff to player 1 than R2. From the table R1 pays off 3 for C1, 2 for C2, and 1 for C3, while R2 pays off 2 for C1, b for C2, and 0 for C3. R1 is better than R2 for C1 and C3. We only need to ensure that it is better than R2 for C2. R1 offers a pay off of 2 for C2, and as long ...
