I have no idea what Mod in histogram is. As an operation, the MOD button on a scientific calculator gives the remainder when one number is divided by another. E.g.

gives 5 (i.e. 21 divided by 8 leaves a remainder of 5).

That MOD in histogram should be MODE. It has no connection with MOD (apart from sharing some letters)

Yes. In a biology exam, I was once asked to write the similarities between cat, bat and rat

Cats are catty, bats are batty, rats are ratty.
