  1. It is because it represents how much there are very clearly.
    The biggest amount was the cones because it had 31 cones .
    The smallest was the twigs,feathers and leaves .

  2. That’s because it represents all of the information in groups.
    The greatest amount was the cones because their were 31 of them and their was nothing else more bigger than the that.

  3. Because it tells you how much objects there are, number of things there are now small the amount is and you can read it clearly.
    The cones were the greatest amount because there was 31 cones.
