(i) Here, it can be observed that the data has class intervals of varying width. The proportion of the number of surnames per 2 letters interval can be calculated as follows. 

By taking the number of letters on x-axis and the proportion of the number of surnames per 2 letters interval on y-axis and choosing an appropriate scale (1 unit = 4 students for y axis), the histogram can be constructed as follows. 

(ii) The class interval in which the maximum number of surnames lies is 6 − 8 as it has 44 surnames in it i.e., the maximum for this data.
