How to say that something is the same regarding each pair in a group of different pairs of things?
They are two scenarios that I am comparing. Each scenario has 2 variation that slightly differ from one another. The first variation of the first scenario parallels the first variation of the second scenario, and the second variation of the first scenario parallels the second variation of the second scenario. The number of people involved in each variation in each scenario is the same as the number of people involved in its counterpart in the other scenario.
Now I want to say the content of the last sentence differently as something as
> The number of involved people are the same **in each of the paralleling variations**.
> The number of involved people are the same **in each pair of the
> paralleling variations**.
Which way of saying the strong part is correct/preferred? Or maybe both are problematic?
Because each scenario is slightly different but the number of people stay the same throughout, then I would say "The number of people involved are the same in each of the paralleling variations." This will clarify to the reader that the number of people does not change. Adding "... in each pair of..." would give the reader more information than necessary, as they can already imply that the parallels are in pairs. Hope this helps!
