(i) Draw a double bar graph choosing an appropriate scale.

What do you infer from the bar graph?

(ii) Which sport is most popular?

(iii) Which is more preferred, watching or participating in sports?

(i) We can draw the double graph of the given data as follows:

Now,

As per the question,

The double bar graph represents the number of people who like watching and participating in various sports.

Now,

We can observe that,

The maximum number of people are fond of either watching or participating in cricket.

And,

The least number of people are fond of either watching or participating in athletics.

We can observe that,

The tallest bar representing the people who like either watching or participating any sport is of cricket.

Hence,

It can be concluded that,

Cricket is the most popular game whom people either like to watch or participate.
