- •Propositions used to assess DNA comparisons should be functionally exhaustive.
- •We combine various propositions so that collectively they are exhaustive.
- •The LR formed given these exhaustive propositions is termed LRE.
- •LRE is, in most cases, well approximated by assuming the other POI(s) is a donor.
- •Advice is given when pairs of donors individually have LR > 1 but together LR = 0.
