 Sectors Investment(in ten crores of rupees) Central Government SecuritiesState Government SecuritiesSecurities guaranteed by the GovernmentPrivate SectorsSocially oriented sectors (Plans)Socially oriented sectors (Non-Plan) 451123184611

Represent the above data with the help of bar graph.

#### Solution

To represent the given data by a vertical bar graph, we first draw horizontal and vertical axes. Let us consider that the horizontal and vertical axes represent the sectors and the investment in ten Crores of rupees respectively. We have to draw 6 bars of different lengths given in the table.

At first we mark 6 points in the horizontal axis at equal distances and erect rectangles of the same width at these points. The heights of the rectangles are proportional to the investments of Life Insurance Corporation of India.

The vertical bar graph of the given data is following:

The short forms used in the graph are

(a) C.G.S. : Central Government Securities

(b) S.G.S. : State Government Securities

(c) S.G.G. : Securities Guaranteed by Government

(d) P.S. : Private Sectors

(e) S.O.S.(P) : Socially Oriented Sectors (Plan)
