Graphs are pictures that help us understand amounts. These amounts are called data.

### 1.Which is the best type of graph to show the number of people in four different towns?

• A.

Pie grapH

• B.

Bar grapH

• C.

Line grapH

• D.

PictograpH

B. Bar grapH
Explanation
A bar graph is the best type of graph to show the number of people in four different towns because it allows for easy comparison of the population sizes. Each town can be represented by a separate bar, with the height of the bar indicating the number of people in that town. This visual representation makes it simple to see which town has the highest or lowest population, as well as any differences or similarities between the towns.

### 2,Which type of graph would you use to show the proportion of students who own a cat, dog, fish, bird, and no pet?

• A.

Pie grapH

• B.

PictograpH

• C.

Bar grapH

• D.

Line grapH

A. Pie grapH
Explanation
A pie graph would be the most appropriate type of graph to show the proportion of students who own different types of pets. A pie graph uses slices of a circle to represent different categories, with the size of each slice corresponding to the proportion or percentage it represents. In this case, each slice would represent a different type of pet (cat, dog, fish, bird, and no pet), and the size of each slice would show the proportion of students who own that particular pet. This would provide a clear visual representation of the distribution of pet ownership among the students.

### 3.Which is the best type of graph to show the population of New York City over the past 70 years?

• A.

Pie grapH

• B.

Bar grapH

• C.

Line grapH

• D.

PictograpH

C. Line grapH
Explanation
A line graph is the best type of graph to show the population of New York City over the past 70 years because it allows for the representation of continuous data over time. The x-axis can represent the years, while the y-axis can represent the population. The line connecting the data points will show the trend and changes in population over the years, making it easier to interpret and analyze the data.

### 4.Which graph is show the number of pictures of books of six students in the class?

• A.

PictograpH

• B.

Bar grapH

• C.

Line grapH

• D.

Pie grapH

A. PictograpH
Explanation
A pictograph is the correct answer because it is a graph that uses pictures or symbols to represent data. In this case, the number of pictures of books of six students in the class is being represented using pictures or symbols in the graph. A bar graph uses bars to represent data, a line graph shows the relationship between two variables over time, and a pie graph shows the proportion of different categories within a whole.

### 5.Which type of graph would you use to show the populations of five neighboring countries?

• A.

Pie grapH

• B.

Line grapH

• C.

PictograpH

• D.

Bar grapH

D. Bar grapH
Explanation
A bar graph would be the most suitable type of graph to show the populations of five neighboring countries. A bar graph uses rectangular bars of different lengths to represent different categories or groups, in this case, the countries. The height of each bar represents the population of each country, allowing for easy comparison and analysis of the population sizes. This type of graph is commonly used to display numerical data and is particularly effective when comparing multiple categories or groups.
