In this paper, we study the interplay between differential option quality and differential quantity of individuals with fixed option (henceforth called zealots), in a best-of-n problem with n - 2 options. We study how the consensus equilibria change with respect to these two factors. We perform systematic computer simulations in an antagonistic scenario whereby one option has a higher quality but a minority of zealots compared to the other option.
