• 1.

### Time is generally considered as -continuous variable-categorical variable

continuous variable
Explanation
Time is generally considered as a continuous variable because it can take on any value within a specific range or interval. It is not limited to specific categories or distinct values. Time can be measured and divided into smaller units, such as seconds, minutes, or hours, and can also be represented as a decimal or fraction. Additionally, time can be infinitely divided, allowing for any possible value between two given points. Therefore, time is best described as a continuous variable rather than a categorical variable.

### Time is generally plotted on (you can choose more than one option)

• A.

X-axis

• B.

Y-axis

• C.

Vertical axis

• D.

Horizontal axis

A. X-axis
D. Horizontal axis
Explanation
Time is generally plotted on the X-axis or the horizontal axis. In a typical graph, the X-axis represents the independent variable, which is often time in many cases. The horizontal orientation of the X-axis allows for easy visualization and comparison of data points over time. By plotting time on the X-axis, it becomes easier to analyze trends, patterns, and relationships between variables.

### In order to better evaluate the evolution of the dependent variables correspondingly to the independent variable, a table should be trandsformed into

• A.

Bar chart

• B.

Line graph

• C.

Pie chart

• D.

Flow chart

B. Line graph
Explanation
A line graph is the appropriate choice for evaluating the evolution of dependent variables in relation to an independent variable. A line graph displays data points connected by lines, allowing for a visual representation of the trend or pattern over time. This type of graph is often used to show changes or trends in data, making it suitable for analyzing the relationship between variables over a continuous scale. A bar chart, pie chart, or flow chart would not provide the same level of detail or clarity in showing the progression of variables over time.

### What a table can tell you?

• A.

A table helps organise information so it is easier to see patterns and relationships

• B.

If a variable is continuous, the table reveals a lot more information. It may show the range, interval, and number of readings

• C.

Tables with multiple variables can provide a lot of information. They can be read by selecting and controlling factors to search for patterns in the data.

• D.

All of the above

D. All of the above
Explanation
A table can help organize information, making it easier to see patterns and relationships. If a variable is continuous, the table can provide additional information such as the range, interval, and number of readings. Tables with multiple variables can also provide a lot of information and allow for the selection and control of factors to search for patterns in the data. Therefore, all of the given statements are correct explanations of what a table can tell you.

• 5.

### When you want to compare parts of a whole, which do not show changes over time, you use a

• A.

Flow chart

• B.

Pie chart

• C.

Table

• D.

Line graph

• E.

Bar chart

B. Pie chart
Explanation
A pie chart is used when you want to compare parts of a whole that do not show changes over time. This type of chart is circular and divided into slices, with each slice representing a different category or component of the whole. The size of each slice corresponds to the proportion of that category or component relative to the whole. This makes it easy to visually compare the different parts and understand their relative contributions to the whole.
