Build a two-dimensional coordinate plane. X will post the answers and the points on the y-axis is the frequency of their occurrence. Mark the results on the chart so that in the end, you get vertical columns, whose number coincides with the number of selected features. Their height must match the frequency of their occurrence. That information was perceived better paint columns in different colors. Color pick so that they don't "cut" the eye.
