The second graph is based on pizza toppings.
The third graph is based on car colour.

What are three things that we can learn from each graph?
We can learn from the first graph that soccer is the most popular sport, gymnastics is the least popular, and swimming is the second most popular.
We can learn from the second graph that pepperoni is the most popular, supreme is the least popular, the cheese is the second most popular.
We can learn from the third graph that silver is the most popular colour, red is the least popular, black is the second most popular colour.

You need to look at the Graph title, Axis and their labels and the graph totals.
