@saitaladev_142721 The question is a little bit more nuanced than it seems. Cassandra does not use a "majority wins" principle to determine if a request can be satisfied.
The "largest group of nodes" does not guarantee that:
Having enough replicas in the same data centre is relevant because for consistency level such as
LOCAL_QUORUM, the application only cares about replicas in the local DC and there's a chance the contactable nodes won't necessarily be local and could be from remote DCs. Cheers!
