Question: The bar chart constructed using MINITAB is from a study

The bar chart (constructed using MINITAB) is from a study 2 investigating the factors that influence alligators’ choice of food. For 219 alligators captured in four Florida lakes, researchers classified the primary food choice (in volume) found in the alligator’s stomach in one of the categories—fish, invertebrate (snails, insects, crayfish), reptile (turtles, baby alligators), bird, or other (amphibian, mammal, plants).
a. Is primary food choice categorical or quantitative?
b. Which is the modal category for primary food choice?
c. About what percentage of alligators had fish as the primary food choice?
d. This type of bar chart, with categories listed in order of frequency, has a special name. What is it?
