Answer with explanation:
1. Scatter plot : In Scatter plot, which consist of two variables, are represented in two dimensional plane through dots.If you join these points along the order in which they are given , you can’t predict whether they are in ascending or descending order.But if you arrange the data in ascending order and then plot it on two dimensional plane, you will get numerical data in ascending order.
2. Line Graph: A line graph is representation of something over a period of time. Suppose an object is not moving uniformly, we plot distance traveled in different interval of time in two dimensional coordinate plane.As Distance traveled is always positive , with increase in time , distance traveled will increase or remain constant , for two duration or period. So, we can say with conformity that Line graph is also one of the simplest way of representation of numerical data in ascending order.
3. Box-and-whisker plot: In Box and whisker plot, when data is arranged in ascending order, then a box is drawn, the upper and lower ends of box are first Quartile and third Quartile Respectively.Median lies inside the box.The spanning of whole box tells about Interquartile range.And the two line segments which are connected from the two ends of box ,one end of segment is lowest value in Data set and Other end of segment is largest observation in the data set.In Box and whisker Plot, Numerical data is also arranged in ascending order.
4. Stem and Leaf Plot: In Stem and Leaf plot, data is splitted into parts, the first digit of number from left is stem and last digit from right is Leaf.
For, example 45,46,47,……
4 is Stem and 5,6,7 are Leaves.
So, the way of representation of numerical data, is simplest in stem and leaf plot.
Option D:Stem- and- Leaf Plot , is simplest method to represent numerical data in ascending order.
