We have applied the graphical user interfaced close binary system analysis program WINFITTER to an intensive study of Kepler-91 using all the available photometry from the NASA Exoplanet Archive (NEA) at the Caltech website: Our fitting function for the tidal distortion derives from the relevant Radau equation and includes terms up to the fifth power of the fractional radius. This results in a systematic improvement in the mass ratio estimation over that of Lillo-Box et al. (Astron. Astrophys. 562:A109, 2014a) and our derived value for the mass ratio is in close agreement with that inferred from recent high-resolution spectroscopic data.
