Suppose someone sends me a ranking with: 1) AAA 2) BBB 8) CCC (i.e. wanting to assert that CCC was so bad that all other games are above it, but no opinion on those other games)
He/she is expressing an opinion on those other games--that they're better than CCC (which is a questionable assertion of they've not been sufficiently evaluated to determine this).
Will that work alone, or would I have to add in this "padding" to make that "ranked 8th" or "absolute worst" status for CCC? 1) AAA 2) BBB 3) DDD, EEE, FFF, GGG, HHH 8) CCC
That appears to be precisely what they tried to express (unless the 8 was really a typo for 3).
