The time series plot has a(n) ▼ upward stationary downward trend. c) Which graphical display seems the more appropriate for these data? Explain? A. The time series plot is more appropriate because the data changes over time. B. The histogram is more appropriate because data that are measured as a price are more appropriately displayed as a histogram. C. The time series plot is more appropriate because data that are measured as a price are more appropriately displayed as a time series plot. D. The histogram is more appropriate because it shows the correct skew of the data.
