b) The ability to query large amounts of data in a variety of user-friendly ways.
c) To focus on the information that we are interested in, we filter, sort, group, and conditionally format the most useful and interesting subset of data.
d) To see different summaries of the source data, move from row to column or column to row (Pivoting).
e) The probability of a useful and accurate analysis is increased by using a pivot table. Obtaining accurate, useful data, having access to the data for analysis, asking the right questions of the available data, and finally, conducting the analysis with the right tools are the biggest challenges we face in data-driven decision support.)
