The Great Compromise settled which key issue at the Constitutional Convention?

The Great Compromise settled the dispute of state representation in the U.S. Congress. It was decided that representation in the U.S. House of Representatives would be proportional to population, while representation in the U.S. Senate would be equal among all states.

In the lower house (the House of Representatives), the small states got the proportional representation they wanted. In the upper house (the Senate), the large states got the equal representation they wanted with every state getting two senators.

How did the great compromise satisfy both the small and the large states?

What provision in the Constitution is not subject to amendment through Article V?

According to Article V, two provisions, one which has expired, the other still in effect may not be amended. The first was importation of slaves the prohibition of which was forbidden until the early 1800's. The second is that no state may, without its own consent, be deprived of its equal representation in the senate. As the Constitution mandates an amendment is passed at three fourths ratification of the states this effectively means this provision of the Constitution cannot be amended as it would require more ratification votes than the Constitution permits meaning the amendment itself would be unconstitutional.
