In the given pictograph, 1 picture = 4 girls, half picture = 2 girls (a) Observing the pictograph, it is clear that the minimum number of girl students are in class VIII i.e. 4 + 2 = 6 (b) Observing the pictograph, it is clear that Number of girls in class VI = 4 x 4 = 16 and number of girls in class $V=2\times 4+1\times 2=8+2=10\text{ }$ $\therefore$ $10<16$ So, it is clear that number of girls in class VI is not less than the number of girls in class V.
