Line graphs:
Graphs are used to represent statistical data. A line graph is a diagram showing the relationship between the points, drawn by joining several points. It visulaizes how two variables are related to each other and how they vary with repect to one another. It can be represented in an xy plane, where independent variables are represented on x-axis and dependent variables in y-axis.
Scatter plots:
It is used to represent the values of two variables obtained from a set of data. It visualizes how one variable is affected by another. The values of the two variables are plotted along x- axis and y-axis and the points plotted represent the correlation existing between the two variables.
Bar graph:
Bar graph is used to compare a set of data by drawing rectangles corresponding to the data being compared. The graphs are represented using vertical bars.
Pie charts:
A pie chart is a circular graph that is divided in to segments where each segment represents a percentage of the whole segment. Thus, it can be identified how much percentage each segment constitutes to the whole.
Here, the weight of the students in first semester and in second semester is measured. Since two sets of data is being compared and hence the best way to visually present the data is by using a Bar Graph.
Answer:
The best way to visually present the data is by using a Bar Graph.

Unusual points Each of the four scatterplots that follow shows a cluster of points and one “stray” point. For each, answer these questions:
1) In what way is the point unusual? Does it have high leverage, a large residual, or both?
2) Do you think that point is an influential point?
3) If that point were removed, would the correlation be- come stronger or weaker? Explain.
4) If that point were removed, would the slope of the re- gression line increase or decrease? Explain

The accompanying data on y = normalized energy \(\displaystyle{\left[{\left(\frac{{J}}{{m}^{{2}}}\right)}\right]}\) and x = intraocular pressure (mmHg) appeared in a scatterplot in the article “Evaluating the Risk of Eye Injuries: Intraocular Pressure During High Speed Projectile Impacts” (Current Eye Research, 2012: 43-49), an estimated regression function was superimposed on the plot.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline x & 2761 & 19764 & 25713 & 3980 & 12782 & 19008 & 19028 & 14397 & 9606 & 3905 & 25731 \\ \hline y & 1553 & 14999 & 32813 & 1667 & 8741 & 16526 & 26770 & 16526 & 9868 & 6640 & 1220 & 30730 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
