When I am describing a chart like a bar chart, what else expressions can I use instead of "The chart shows that" to avoid using "shows" too many times? Maybe like "it reveals..." or "it indicates..."

    Do you have specific reasons why "shows" doesn't work? – Nathan Tuggy Jun 8 '17 at 23:41
  • @NathanTuggy just want to avoid using "Shows" too many times in an article :) – Ling Duan Jun 9 '17 at 0:32

    Just delete it. Instead of "The chart shows that X," just say "X (see chart 2)". – alephzero Jun 9 '17 at 0:51
  • Depends on the context, there are some options such as: display, exhibit etc. thesaurus.com/browse/display – Judicious Allure Jun 9 '17 at 20:04

reveals
indicates
demonstrates
illustrates
exhibits
presents

basically any synonyms of possible.

What is important is the context which will determine which alternative words are appropriate.
