### 1. Pie Chart

#### Example:

1. The following pie chart depicts the results of a survey regarding distribution of different Blood groups in a college. ( Page No 233 )

The Pie Chart Shows the results of a survey regarding the distribution of different Blood groups in a college, the four blood groups have been taken into consideration that is ‘O” group, “B” Group “AB” group “A” Group.

The next largest group comprises students with B Group of Blood. 30% of students belong to this category. 25% of students have AB Group of Blood. Finally, we see that only 10% of students have A Group of Blood.

Thus, from the pie chart, we can conclude that many students have an O Group of Blood, and very few have an A Group.
