  10. a.8
    b.8
    c.25
    d.i. Yes it can as it counts how many or much things there are at a certain time or place thus making it suitable for this information.
    d.ii. No, as line graphs are used to represent progression of something over a period of time unlike the information which is only at one point of time.

  12. Find the number of heavy vehicles observed at 7.05 am (8)
    How many more cars are there as compared to heavy vehicles at 7.05 am? (8)
    (c) What is the total number of vehicles on the road at 7.05 am? (25)
    (d) Is it possible to present the above information using the following charts? Justify your answers.
      Pie Chart (yes)
    it is because it cannot be put into exact degrees and it might be hard to put the info on a pie chart

    Line Graph (yes)
    it is because the information can be put into exact numbers as it is shown in whole numbers.

    (c) 25
    (d) (i) Yes. The data shown can be placed in a pie chart because all the data can fit into it and it is based on 1 moment of time.
    (ii) No. It is not possible because firstly, there is only one moment of time to compare and secondly, all of them cannot fit into one line graph and thirdly, we cannot compare the data in the line graph.
