## Text Solution

**What is known?**

The seats won by different political parties in the polling outcome of a state assembly elections.

**What is unknown?**

- Bar graph to represent the polling results.
- The political party which won the maximum number of seats.

**Reasoning: **

The given data can be represented through a bar graph by:

- Taking ‘Political Party’ on \(x\)-axis and seats won on \(y\)-axis with a scale of \(1\,\rm unit = 10\) seats on \(y\)-axis.
- Maintaining equal width for all the bars in \(x\)-axis with equal gaps in between them.

From the graph, it can be observed that the political party ‘\(A\)’ won the maximum number of results.
