A line diagram or line graph, is a kind of outline used to imagine the estimation of something over some given stretch of time. The line chart accordingly characterizes the connection between two arrangements of qualities; with one informational collection being reliant on the other set. It is generally used to show change after some time as a progression of different information focuses associated by straight line fragments on two axes. In  exams, you will see an arrangement of inquiries in view of line chart issues, in which you should do diagram understanding, dissect the data and after that answer the inquiries.
The most effective method  to make a line Chart:  
The line chart comprises of a level x-axis and a vertical y-axis. Line diagrams are drawn with the goal that the reliant information are on the vertical y-axis and the autonomous information are on level x-axis (e.g. time). The greater part of the line diagrams just manage positive numbers' values, so these axis commonly cross close to the base of the y-axis and the left end of the x-axis. The time when the axis cross is more often than not (0, 0). Every axis is marked with a particular information sort. E.g., the x-axis could be days, quarters, weeks, or years, while the y-axis could be income, generation, consumption, cost in rupees and so on.
Line charts are helpful as they demonstrate information factors and patterns unmistakably. Line diagrams can make expectations about consequences of information not yet recorded. This kind of chart is most capable visual device for fund, showcasing, and different zones. It is additionally helpful in climate checking, lab look into, or some other capacity including a connection b/w two numerical values. On the off chance that more than one line is on the diagram, it can be utilized as an examination between them. When contrasting these informational collections, line diagrams are just relevant if the axis take after similar scales.
