Question

In the context of this exercise, why is it helpful to learn these different plots in Seaborn?

Answer

It is helpful to learn different plots in Seaborn because each one gives us a different way of visualizing data.

Unfortunately, there is no “one-plot-fits-all” for all datasets you work with. Instead, in certain situations, some plots are better suited than others.

As we can see in the example plots given in this exercise, the bar charts only show certain aspects of the data, like the mean. If we needed to see the data distribution and spread, we would need to use another plot type like a KDE or violin plot which would be more suited for the task.

As you work with more datasets, knowing more plot types and having them at your disposal for certain visualizations can be very helpful.
