**Solution:**

A circle graph or pie chart shows the relationship between a whole and its parts. Sum of the total angles in a pie chart is equal to 360°.

The central angle for each language can be calculated as below:

Language |
Number of Students |
Fraction (Number of students/72) |
Central Angles |

Hindi | 40 | 40/72 = 5/9 | 5/9 × 360 = 200° |

English | 12 | 12/72 = 1/6 | 1/6 × 360 = 60° |

Marathi | 9 | 9/72 = 1/8 | 1/8 × 360 = 45° |

Tamil | 7 | 7/72 | 7/72 × 360 = 35° |

Bengali | 4 | 4/72 = 1/18 | 1/18 × 360 = 20° |
