Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For first part, you can plot any xy scatter plot whether they are in ascending order or not. So order is not relevant. Line graph would require the xcoord. 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 onedimensional data. Quesion is not clear as to the data is one or twodimensional, 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 xcoordinates 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!
