Answer : The bar graph shows how people use computers and the internet. About 50% of the population uses it every day, including for school, personal, work, and to have fun. The most popular way to use e-mail is for work. About 58% of students do this every day. But only 8-9% do it at school once a month or less often. Internet usage is still not as common as writing by hand or on paper for communication with others since e-mails are not always sent by people because many ways exist to communicate with others now that are much easier than before. In conclusion, 5% of people never use computers or do anything else related to them.
