Box-and-whisker plots are also known as a box plot.They represents the distribution of values along the axis.

Boxes indicate the middle 50 percent of the data which is, the middle two quartiles of the data's distribution.

The remaining 50 percent of data on both sides is represented by lines also called whiskers, to display all points within 1.5 times the interquartile range, which is all points within 1.5 times the width of the adjoining box, or all points at the maximum extent of the data.

The Box Plots take one or more measures with zero or more dimensions.
