Isn't it? I reckon I could explain it in a paragraph:
Rank all the items in order of preferences, marking a number
against them, with "1" as your most prefered choice, "2" as your
next most prefered choice, etc. If you give two or more items the
same number, you are saying you like them as much as each other. Any
items that you do not rank, are allocated preferences equal to each
other and lower than all the items you have ranked."
