Solution

## The correct option is C 5 unitAs shown in the figure, the height of the bar = 10 units Area of the histogram = Area of the frequency polygon = 100 units2 Both bars are of the same equal length so we can take them as a whole rectangle. Let x is the length of a class interval , Area of rectangle = 2x×10 = Area of frequency polygon = 100 unit2 ⟹20×x=100 →x=5
