    For the first part, it depends on the data, if both x and y are ascending, or x is ascending and y is not, etc. For B, the ends of the boxes are the quartiles (left=1st quartile), right(3rd quartile). Figure out the quartiles, and take the difference.

    For first part, you can plot any x-y scatter plot whether they are in ascending order or not. So order is not relevant. Line graph would require the x-coord. to be ordered, but makes sense only if the plot is some kind of a function and not random data. Box and whisker plot for a one dimensional data from which you need to sort and look for the quartiles, and extremes. Order is useful. Stem and leaf is also for one-dimensional data. Quesion is not clear as to the data is one- or two-dimensional, and the word "best" is not very mathematical, IMHO, so creates confusion. Glad you got the right answer. For part B, examine the box plot and identify the x-coordinates of the two ends of the box, and take the difference. Read very carefully, and if you don't get the right answer, post the two numbers you read!
