What is Solvent Ranking?

Still doing the ECR Dec 07 Exam and am now on Task 2.4. Dont have a clue what Solvent Ranking is. I have looked at my book and googled it but still no joy. Can anyone tell me?

This exam paper is hard as anything. Done a couple of others already and managed them not too badly but having a total nightmare with this one. I hope December's is not like this.

    Read the whole task
    Get up walk away and think
    Then go back and read it again

    Limiting factor analysis is based on ranking the products a firm could make in order of the contribuition each earns per amount of a limiting factor of input.

    If you produce different types of solvent, it is the same technique as you'd use if you produced different types of soup.

    Yes I was just going to post that I know what it is now. I am not feeling too good today (well that's my excuse). I think as I have struggled with this whole exam I am starting to panic and think I dont know the answers. But I will say in my defense that I am studying by Distance Learning and only have the Osbourne Book to study from and there is nothing mentioned about ranking in there. Therefore I rely on help from the forums and the Internet (and you Sandy are the best at explaining things to people)
    Thanks again

    I can't get much further south and I guess you're not a million miles from Aberdeen so there's only a bit of mainland north of you. But if things get tough, think about the AAT revision days in London. I do the ECR day.
    Here is a link to flights between Aberdeen and London
