As a result of the combination of the graphs, the y-axis scales are also confusing. It is unclear whether the “platforms” on the left refers to the line or the bar graph, and vice versa. The bar graph’s scale is spaced too closely together, so it fails to show significant changes between each year. The line graph’s numerical
