In a __________ the bars touch one another,but in a bar graph,the bars do not.

A) Line graph
B) Smooth curve
C) Histogram
D) Frequency polygon


Graph that uses vertical bars to represent the frequencies of a set of variables. The measured values found within the distribution are listed on the horizontal axis (x-axis) and frequency counts are placed on the vertical axis (y-axis).

Bar Graph

A chart that represents categorical data with rectangular bars with lengths proportional to the values they represent.

Frequency Polygon

Variation of a histogram where rather than a series of vertical bars, a line is drawn to connect the midpoint for each of the different measured variables in the distribution.

  • Differentiate between types of graphs and their uses in displaying data.

Final Answer :
Explanation :
A histogram is a type of graph that is used to represent continuous data. In a histogram, the bars touch one another as they represent ranges of data, whereas in a bar graph, the bars do not touch as they represent separate categories. The other options (line graph, smooth curve, frequency polygon) do not have touching bars as a defining characteristic.
