True as the data or information can be analysed more easily.

False.

Sometimes trying to put quantitative data on a number line or coordinate plane makes it harder to work with, if it can even be done. Try putting -106, 0.003, 2, 67348, and 1000040 on a number line.

This is another case of a poorly worded question. It is possible that some data placed on a coordinate plane or number line will be found to be easier to work with after that is done. The statement is true if intended in that sense. The statement is false if it is intended to mean that it is possible to make any data set easier to work with by plotting the data.
