1.) Based on a survey of a few thousand people, a newspaper reporter wants to draw conclusions about how a country’s citizens in general feel about the war in Iraq.

My answer: Performing statistical inference

2.) A New York Times reporter decides to convey information about American divorce rates by including a nap of the United States. Each state is shaded from light to dark depending on how high its divorce rate is.

My answer: Displaying and summarizing date
