Default Sci project help- quick!

The project was to test if wire, paper clip, foil, and pencil lead would light a bulb. They had to write the results in a data table or chart (did it light the bulb, did it bend without breaking, etc.) This part was easy.

The difficult question: In what other way could you have graphically represented the data you recorded in the Data Table?

What does the chart look like? Were there checks or "yes" or "no" questions?
You could make a pie graph stating the percentage of the materials that lit the bulb/did all the other stuff you mentioned.
You could make a venn diagram too.

She ended up writing "a bar chart" and left it at that.
There was no numerical or variable data - just yes or no answers so there was no way of making another chart. If they had to check the current with a meter or something it would make sense to make a chart.

I think the teacher did not read thru the instructions or he would have removed that question.
