Thirdly, the bundle for zone 20 accounts for more rejections than any other zone. Indeed, there is no zone for which consistency with zone 20 passes. Clearly these three observations are related. The low value of the zone 20 bundle makes it more likely to be utility consistent, and more likely to differ from the bundles elsewhere.
