UPPER LEVEL SSAT SAMPLE QUESTION: Interpretation of Graphs
Here’s a SSAT sample question to help you practice the type of graphical interpretation problem you may find on the quantitative section of the Upper Level SSAT.
What type of graph could I expect?
Graphs are used to present numerical information in visual form. A bar graph (A) is an easy way to compare quantities. A line graph (B) is used to record numerical changes over time. A circle graph (C) is used when a quantity is divisible into parts and we want to compare the parts.
SSAT Sample Question for Interpreting Graphs:
The graph shows Daniel’s monthly budget while at school. What percentage of his budget is allocated for food and music?
Music accounts for 24%. Food accounts for 20%. Together they account for
24% + 20% = 44%.
