Hi Lakshu,
Thanks for the well wishes! You did some really nice work with the chart.

I have a couple of suggestions for you to consider:
1. For the title of the graph, I would suggest keeping it short and to the point. Typically, the title of the graph should tell you what's on the y-axis and x-axis. In this case, you may want to consider shorten it to " Average Ground Level Ozone Level vs. Distance from Major Highways in St. Louis, MO"

2. For the Y-Axis, I would suggest moving the the LEGEND on the right over to the left side of the graph. This way, the readers can see what those levels mean immediately. Also, I would suggest matching the Y axis title to the title of the graph, i.e. instead of "Average Ozone Level Concentration in parts per billion (ppb), I would suggest " Average Ground Level Ozone Concentration in parts per billion (ppb)"

3. For the X-Axis, it seems a little too busy to me. This may be just because of the page size. However, if this is the final size of the graph, I would suggest that you remove the minor scale from the graph (0.2) and just keep the major scale (0, 1,2,3,4,5,6)

Best of Luck with your project and Have a Great Holiday Seasons!
Willey

Dear Mr.Willey,

Thanks so much for your mail. Sorry I missed seeing your mail. I was sick with sore throat and fever for the past 1 week. Now getting better. Wish you and your family a Happy New Year 2019. I noted down your points and changed accordingly in my graph. I am done writing log book. Only pending is my project board. Thanks again for all your support from the beginning of this project. I will update you after submitting my project in school which is on Jan 16th.

Thanks,
Lakshita

Dear Mr. Willey,

I am very happy to let you know that I got placed first in the school level (across all grades 6, 7 and 8). They suggested minor changes which I will be making before presenting to the regional science fair on March 2nd. Without your help, I would not have accomplished this. Thanks so much for your help and guidance throughout since I started this project.

Thanks,
Lakshita
