Looking at their performances, she found that a few students got under 20 marks and a few got 70 marks or above. So she decided to group them into intervals of varying sizes as follows: 0 – 20, 20 – 30, . . ., 60 – 70, 70 – 100. Then she formed the following table:

Draw a histogram to represent the given data.
