If the lowest value to be plotted is relatively higher than the plotting of the values may pose a problem. In order to solve this false base line is used. The portion between zero and lowest value is left out and no plotting between these two is done. However false base line is used. It should be clearly indicated on the graph. This can be done either by showing a cut in the Y axis or double saw tooth lines as empty space.
