    Let's work out why and why not each one would or would not work.

    dot plot- It can show you data, and the relationship if x and y (er...really general). I usually use this data in my work for data over time. I dunno how else to explain it. a histogram- It can show you how much things are in each category (5 blue dogs, 3 red chats) or a box plot- It shows data, but it is data have margins of errors (e.g. if you were sampling chemicals for purity, this would be helpful)

    So, box plot is definitely out.

    Look up images of each graph, that would help you a lot.

    but yeah, include those. for the y-scale, you'll get a lot of empty values, but go from 0-12.
