R Programming: Order the dataset airquality entire data frame by the first and second column

R Programming: Data frame Exercise-25 with Solution

Write a R program to call the (built-in) dataset airquality. Check whether it is a data frame or not? Order the entire data frame by the first and second column.

Sample Solution :

R Programming Code :

data = airquality
print("Original data: Daily air quality measurements in New York, May to September 1973.")
print(class(data))
print(head(data,10))
result = data[order(data[,1]),]
print("Order the entire data frame by the first and second column:")
print(result)

Sample Output:

[1] "Original data: Daily air quality measurements in New York, May to September 1973."
[1] "data.frame"
   Ozone Solar.R Wind Temp Month Day
