For example, the largest earthquake in 1993 recorded a magnitude of 7.8 in comparison to the 2003 earthquake 10 years later that recorded a magnitude of 8.3.
Once you have graphed the varying magnitude, write down 5 statements according to your data – for example, ‘According to the graph, the earthquake with the highest magnitude is ______’. You may wish to take this further and graph the damage done by each quake..
You will need to think about the following:
Don’t forget to reference the website.

How accurate was your ruler? Compare with the real thing.
