What I want to know is what are the graphic format commands that would work with the command "Show" (because I tried RotateLabel and its not working with Show). Or please read the below for more details.

Or should I change the font size of the text. I prefer not to change the text font size and keep the plot unscaled.

Hello Gopinath,

Why not use MultipleListPlot? This is available through  the Standard
packages
In your help browser
Go to Add-ons and Links->Graphics->MultipleListPlot


Hope this helps
