Question 1.

In what way Is the bar graph better than the pictograph?

Answer:

- Pictographs are difficult and time consuming to construct. But bargraphs easy to draw.
- In pictographs, each pictorial symbol represents a fixcd number of units. So, it becomes a problem to represent and read any fraction of that unit. For example suppose each pictorial symbol represents 50 units. Then 231 units are represented by 4 full pictures and a proportional fraction of the fifth. This proportional representation introduces error and is quite different to guess the correct value.
- But each bar represents only one value. The length or height of the bar indicates the value of the item. So, we represent correct value with bargraphs.
- Thats why hargraph is better than pictograph.
