An example of doublet design using the double-graph technique as described by Kingslake is given. The potential of the double-graph technique is evaluated by applying it to three different cases of doublet design. The technique in its present form is found to give a solution only in one case. In the other two cases the solution can be obtained only by modifying the technique.
