In a bar graph, bars of uniform width are drawn horizontally or vertically with equal spacing between them.**Q.8. In a bar graph, the gap between two consecutive bars may not be the same.****Solution: **False.

In a bar graph, bars of uniform width are drawn horizontally or vertically with equal spacing between them.**Q.9. In a bar graph, each bar (rectangle) represents only one value of the numerical data.****Solution: **True.**Q.10. To represent the population of different towns using bar graph, it is convenient to take one-unit length to represent one person.****Solution: **False.

Population of towns are large numbers, then we may need a different scale.**Q.11. Pictographs and bar graphs are pictorial representations of the numerical data.****Solution: **True.

By the definition, pictographs and bar graphs are pictorial representations of the numerical data.**Q.12. An observation occurring five times in a data is recorded as | | | | |, using tally marks.****Solution:** False.

An observation occurring five times in a data is recorded as using tally marks.**Q.13.

An observation occurring seven times in a data is represented as ________ using tally marks.**

**Solution:**

An observation occurring seven times in a data is represented as using tally marks.**Q.****Solution:**

From the question it is given that, one symbol represents 20 flowers.

Then, 3 symbol represents = 3 × 20

= 60**Q.21. On the scale of 1-unit length = 10 crore, the bar of length 6 units will represent ________ crore and of units will represent 75 crore.****Solution: **From the question it is given that, 1 – unit length = 10 crore,

So, bar of length 6 units = 6 × 10

= 60 crore

Then, number of units will represent 75 crore = 75/10

= 7.5 units

On the scale of 1-unit length = 10 crore, the bar of length 6 units will represent 60 crore and of 7.5 units will represent 75 crore.**Q.22.
