1. Explain the reading and interpretation of bar graphs. 
Solution: 
 
A graph with its length proportional to the value it represents is called a bar graph. The bars can either be plotted 
horizontally or vertically. It is basically a visual display which is used to compare the amount of occurrence of 
various characteristics of data. 
Bar graph help us to 
(i) Compare the groups of data 
(ii) Generalize the data 
 
2. Read the following bar graph and answer the following questions: 
 
 
(i) What information is given by the bar graph? 
(ii) In which year the export is minimum? 
(iii) In which year the import is maximum? 
(iv) In which year the difference of the values of export and import is maximum? 
Solution: 
 
Consider a chart by using data from the bar graph:

The year which shows the maximum decrease in the number of persons killed in industrial accidents over the 
preceding year is 1996. 
 
The year 1996 and 1999 shows the decrease in the amount of persons killed by industrial accidents. 
% decrease in the death in 1996 = 43.75% 
% decrease in the death in 1999 = 30.77% 
 
(iii) The option (a) is the correct answer. 
The year in which the maximum number of persons were killed in industrial accidents other than those killed in 
coal mines is 1995. 
 
1600 persons were killed in the year 1995 due to industrial accidents which is higher when compared to other 
years. 
 
5. The production of saleable steel in some of the steel plants of our country during 1999 is given below: 
 
 
Construct a bar graph to represent the above data on a graph paper by using the scale 1 big divisions = 20 
thousand tonnes. 
Solution: 
 
Construct two mutually perpendicular lines OX and OY. 
Let us mark plants along the horizontal line OX and mark production along the vertical line OY. 
Take equal width for each bar on the axis OX. 
Now let us take a suitable scale to find the heights of the bar. 
Take 1 division = 20 thousand tonnes
