b) the line width in the base graphics system
c) the orientation of the axis labels on the plot
d) the plotting symbol/character in the base graphics system

View Answer

Answer: d [Reason:] R makes it easy to combine multiple plots into one overall graph, using either the par( ) or layout( ) function.

10. If I want to save a plot to a PDF file, which of the following is a correct way of doing that?
a) Construct the plot on the screen device and then copy it to a PDF file with dev.copy2pdf()
b) Construct the plot on the PNG device with png(), then copy it to a PDF with dev.copy2pdf()
c) Open the PostScript device with postscript(), construct the plot, then close the device with
d) Open the screen device with quartz(), construct the plot, and then close the device with

View Answer

Answer: a [Reason:] With the par( ) function, you can include the option mfrow=c(nrows, ncols) to create a matrix of nrows x ncols plots that are filled in by row.
