Multiple Bar Diagram
This model is also same as the simple Bar Diagram. But the difference is, here we have to encounter more than one bar… I mean, we have to do problems with two or more vertical or horizontal bars. In these type of diagrams normally they will give the information of two different organizations (like the production of soaps of two different companies) or the information of two different items of the same organization (like the production of the soaps and shampoos of the same company) and asks questions on the given data. Have a look at an example.
The below Multiple Bar Diagram shows the imports and exports of an organization over the years 1999 to 2004.
The imports in 2000-01 is what percent of the imports in 2002-03 ? (followed by some options)
Imports in 2000 – 01 is 400
Imports in 2002 – 03 is 500
So the answer is 80%
