Google Forms is revamped, and the New Google Forms has some cool new features.
Well, "cool" if you are a maths geek like me. New Google Forms gives you a Responses page with some lovely graphs automatically generated.
I went hunting to see if someone else out there had documented what type of charts/graphs appear for each type of question. And I couldn't find anything, so here you are:

Form Question Type
Chart Type
When to Use
Chart
Drop-down list Pie Chart What proportion of all respondents gave a particular answer
Multiple Choice Pie Chart What proportion of all respondents gave a particular answer
Linear Scale Column chart How many of each answer is there?
Checkboxes Bar Chart How many of each answer is there?
Multiple Choice Grid All Answers Column Chart How many of each answer is there, and how do they compare to each other question (row)
