In this sentence, what is the part of speech of 'below'?

Can we write like this?: The bar graph which is below shows the TV viewing habits of Koreans.

**Writeacher**, Saturday, November 17, 2007 at 8:03amIn the first sentence, "below" is being used as an adjective, telling us about the bar graph.http://www.uottawa.ca/academic/arts/writcent/hypergrammar/adjectve.html

You can write it as you have in the second version, but that sentence is considered "wordy." (Too many words to say something simpler.) The first sentence is better.
