Listed below are the numbers of unprovoked shark attacks worldwide for the last several years Why is it that a dotplot of these data would not be very effective in helping us understand the data Which of the following graphs would be most effective for these data dotplot stemplot time series graph Pareto chart pie chart frequency polygon 70 54 68 82 79 83 76 73 98 81 0 Why is it that a dotplot of these data would not be very effective in helping us understand the data OA Even though the data are numeric they are actually categorical data because each value is discrete B The data set is too small for a dotplot to reveal important characteristics of the data OC The spread of the data is very small so it would be nearly impossible to see any differences when represented graphically OD There are several duplicate values in the data and most graphical methods cannot accurately show duplicate values Which of the following graphs would be most effective for these data dotplot stemplot time series graph Pareto chart pie chart frequency polygon OA A dotplot would be most effective since it is important to be able to recreate the original list of values OB A Pareto chart would be most effective since the data are categorical data OC A stemplot would be most effective since it is important to be able to recreate the original list of values D A time series graph would be most effective since the data are listed in order over a period of several years OE A pie chart would be most effective since the data are categorical data OF A frequency polygon would be most effective since the data are listed in order over a period of several years 4
