Explaining the Performance analysis to you is a difficult task .Most of the time the data is presented in graphical presentation , so we can see some sample types of presentation .After reading this, please go through the practice test .

(Samples are not related to the exams marks, but in exam , you can expect the same type with students group performance)

Line Chart

The line chart is nothing but an upgraded version of a bar chart. It is formed by connecting the uppermost point of the bars so that we have a line. By repeating this following process, with other bars as well we will get a line chart. The calculations can be tough but the main aim of the examiner is to check whether you can apply logic to eliminate options and evaluate the graph thereby getting the answer.

Bar Graph

A bar chart or bar graph is a chart or graph that presents categorical data with rectangular bars with heights or lengths proportional to the values that they represent. The bars can be plotted vertically or horizontally. A vertical bar chart is sometimes called a column chart.

A pie chart is a circular statistical graphic, which is divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportion. In a pie chart, the arc length of each slice, is proportional to the quantity it represents

What is a Pie Chart?

A Pie Chart is a type of graph that displays data in a circular graph. The pieces of the graph are proportional to the fraction of the whole in each category. In other words, each slice of the pie is relative to the size of that category in the group as a whole. The entire “pie” represents 100 percent of a whole, while the pie “slices” represent portions of the whole.

The following chart shows water usage (image courtesy of the EPA). You can see that toilet water usage is greater than shower water usage because the piece of the “pie” is greater:
