#6.7 5.2 Discussions of above test results Tables 2 and 3 clearly show the decision graph with dynamic attributes to always be either outright first or (sometimes) equal first. When testing on the data sets with disjunctions (like abalone scale, tic-tac-toe and XD6), decision graph with dynamic attributes has a much lower error rate. On other data sets, it returns results not worse than those from

In the ABALONE data set [1] with 4177 examples, the goal is to predict the age of Abalones based on 8 inputs.
