Topic Notes
It is important to present data accurately. One way to make data easy to understand is to draw them in graphs, such as line graphs, histograms, bar graphs and pictograms. However, if they are not drawn properly, these graphs can be very misleading too. In this section, we will learn how to critique graphs and the ways to improve them.
