eLearning Lesson 1 Task 1: Choice of Graphs

Among the 4 graphs (Line Graph, Bar Graphs, Pictograms, Pie Charts), identify ONE graph that is NOT an appropriate choice to represent the information?
Why do you think it's not appropriate?
What makes you think the 3 remaining graphs are appropriate?

Pictograms is not an appropriate choice to represent the information.
By using pictograms, we will have to draw the same picture to represent the value, and if the numbers are too big or if there are decimals, it will be very hard to represent the information. We will also need a bigger space to draw out our findings
As the 3 remaining graphs are easier to draw and also in a smaller place, they are hence more appropriate.
