Data Handling: Choice of Graphs by Kevyn Yong



I think that line graphs are the least appropriate for the situation as line graphs are used to tell what happens over time but in this case this data is supposed to be gotten all at the same time.

  1. Good.
    You have correctly pointed out that line graphs are used to inform us of 'trends' over time.
    In addition, you are also observant to point out that the data is gathered at the same time (i.e. for the same day).

    Now, the question is, what if the weather is recorded at different times of day, or we measure weather of different places on different day. Will Line Graph still be relevant? Think about that.
