Answer #1

The correct answer is "B" : Whether a particular variance should be investigated.

A statistical control chart is a chart which is used to study changes in processes and other data over time. Here the data is plotted in a time order and the chart is divided into many lines such as the central line, lower line and the upper line. The basic purpose/method is that by plotting the data into this chart we can compare the data with these lines and determine whether a variance should be investigated or not.
