    much thanks! Unnecessary. Just click 'Thank' when you get a useful reply.
    Start every sentence with a capital letter.

    Ted should have asked you to provide a full sentence containing the phrase you are asking about. This will help us to give you a better answer.

    Understand.

    This line "Number of votes of Class 1B" is being used as the title of a bar chart.

    In that case, 'of' is just fine.

    There was no need to quote my reply. Nobody needed to read it all again.
