6. Lists, Tables, Figures, and Graphs
Lists, tables, figures, and graphs are important ingredients of any project report. Such items highlight key points of emphasis, remove clutter, and make the report structure easy to read and visually appealing.

Figures, graphs, and tables make for powerful tools to present ideas, make comparisons, or summarize points in a way that captures and retains interest. Including all such information in descriptive sentences make the project report too lengthy and cumbersome.
Providing content-heavy labels for graphs, charts figures, and tables provides the readers with a complete summary without having to look into the textual portion of the report.
