Determines which values (frequent or infrequent ones) of an (nominal) attribute are retained and filters the instances accordingly. In case of values with the same frequency, they are kept in the way they appear in the original instances object. E.g. if you have the values "1,2,3,4" with the frequencies "10,5,5,3" and you chose to keep the 2 most common values, the values "1,2" would be returned, since the value "2" comes before "3", even though they have the same frequency.
