Solution

The correct option is **A** Plot 1

Examining each line plot, we find:

Plot 1:

Number of parcels on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is the same.

Total number of parcels = 15

Hence, plot 1 meets all the conditions of the delivery.

Plot 2:

Number of parcels on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is the same.

Total number of parcels = 17

Hence, plot 2 does not meet all the conditions of the delivery.

Plot 3:

Number of parcels on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is the same.

Total number of parcels = 13

Hence, plot 3 does not meet all the conditions of the delivery.

Plot 4:

Number of parcels on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is the same.

Total number of parcels = 12

Hence, plot 4 does not meet all the conditions of the delivery.

Therefore, the only plot that meets all the conditions of the delivery is plot 1.

Examining each line plot, we find:

Plot 1:

Number of parcels on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is the same.

Total number of parcels = 15

Hence, plot 1 meets all the conditions of the delivery.

Plot 2:

Number of parcels on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is the same.

Total number of parcels = 17

Hence, plot 2 does not meet all the conditions of the delivery.

Plot 3:

Number of parcels on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is the same.

Total number of parcels = 13

Hence, plot 3 does not meet all the conditions of the delivery.

Plot 4:

Number of parcels on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is the same.

Total number of parcels = 12

Hence, plot 4 does not meet all the conditions of the delivery.

Therefore, the only plot that meets all the conditions of the delivery is plot 1.
