Abstract: A helpful feature in Milnor's geometric realization [1] of a simplicial set $ X$ is that each equivalence class admits one and only one element (optimal pair) of the form $ (\bar x,\bar t)$ where $ \bar x$ is nondegenerate and $ \bar t$ is an interior point. This realization and several other aspects of Algebraic Topology admit generalizations (R. Ruiz [3]) changing the cosimplicial topological space of the $ {\Delta ^n}$ by a general one, say $ Y$. This paper is devoted to establishing conditions on $ Y$ which guarantee the existence of such pairs on $ {R_Y}(X)$ for every simplicial set $ X$. $ {R_Y}$ denotes the new realization via $ Y$.)
