How can we draw a concave curve like the following one without having any numeric data?

    \draw (0,2) to[out=0,in=90] (3,0);

  • Looks like a quarter of an ellipse to me. Try something like: \draw (0,0) arc [start angle=0, end angle=90, x radius=1cm, y radius=5mm];

In my opinion, drawing without numerical data might be impossible.

Without PSTricks:

    \draw (2,0) arc [x radius=2, y radius=1, start angle=0, end angle=90];% or the old, deprecated, less verbose version \draw (2,0) arc (0:90:2 and 1);
    \draw (-.1,0) -- (2.1,0);
    \draw (0,-.1) -- (0,1.1);

With PSTricks:
