    The decision is for the Proposition: Ruchi Agashe

    Reason for Decision:

    Water argument: The proposition side of the debate gives me a clear reason to vote for her. The fact that I can save the lives of so many people by giving them drinking water is compelling.

    Ruchi: mention greenhouse gases argument at the end of the debate and why it's a reason why you win.

    Iron argument: Ruchi should have made this argument that you can get iron from vegetables a bit earlier. But it seems that even if Steven wins this argument, it still doesn't outweigh all the benefits of having clean water for everyone.

    Deer argument: Steven's argument about deer overpopulation is good, but the question of how it relates to the resolution should be spelled out more. Again, Ruchi needs to give her response to deer and meat-eating earlier.

    Good job.
