The double bar graph represents the number of people who like watching and participating in various sports.

We observe that,

The maximum number of people like either watching or participating in cricket.

The minimum number of people like either watching or participating in athletics.

(ii) According to the graph, the tallest bar is of cricket. Hence, cricket is the most popular sport.
