Remarks: i) Definition 20 coincides with Definition 10. ii) If (F, t) exhibits both uncertainty aversion (attraction) and risk aversion (attraction), then (F, t) also exhibits risk & uncertainty aversion (attraction). :::) exhibits both risk & uncertainty aversion (attraction) and risk attraction (aversion), then (F, t) also exhibits uncertainty aversion (attraction).

P11 there is at least a state of the nature s* E S for which p'( s*) < p"( s* ). Consequently, for an act f = (x1,s*;x2,S\{s*}) with x1 > x2 we have EV(f,p') < EV(f,p"). Therefore, there is no pair p',p" E P such that EV(f,p') ~ EV(f,p") for all f E F and, a fortiori, such that EV(f,p') ~ CE(f) ~ EV(f,p") for all f E F.
