Find the force constant force the graph
k = 1/0.27 = 3.70 n/m ( is this ok )

I don't have a clue of what you are trying to do... What is that graph about? What are the axes? What graph is drawn on it?

Well, the spring constant is given by the gradient. So, find the gradient and that will be the answer.

$Gradient = \dfrac{y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1}$
