His was the 5 confederates and 1 participant right? I revised this for unit two on Thursday haha. I'd say the advantage from the study was that it demonstrates compliance, as the participant knew the right answer but said the wrong one like the confederates ( privately vs publicly). For minority/majority influence, the influence would be that because the majority stuck together and said the same thing, the 1 participant didn't want to feel like the only one saying something different so the majority, being consistent with their answers, persuaded the participant to confirm to them.
Hope that helps x
