Understanding of Bar Graph vs. Line Graph

1. Can there be a time-temperature graph as follows? Justify your answer.


Temperature and Time with Line


Temperature and Time with Cross Line


Temperature and Time with Vertical Line


Temperature and Time with Horizontal Line


(i) It is showing the increase in temperature.

(ii) It is showing the decrease in temperature.

(iii) The graph figure is not possible since temperature is increasing very rapidly which is not possible.

(iv) It is showing constant temperature.
