### Why the soundness error in the $\mathrm{IP}$ of GNI can implicate $\mathrm{\Sigma_2} \subseteq \mathrm{\Pi_2}$ if GNI is co-NP-Complete?

PDF here shows a way to proof GI is NP-Complete $\implies \Sigma_2 = \Pi_2$. In the last step, it writes following: In other words, (1) is false in this case as required. Book Computational ...
