It has been shown that it is necessary for any solution model to have a physically sound estimate of the combinatory factor of the configurational partition function in order to yield consistent properties of the solutions. The pair approximation is found to yield consistent solution properties. It is then concluded that the pair approximation is a sound and self-consistent solution model in spite of some recent criticisms. The possible defects in the other pair models have been identified, and the models shown not to predict consistent solution properties. © 1973.
