  2. Amarnath V. Gopal says:

    * The answer is for question number no 1 Line graph *

    The graph illustrates the consumption of fast food by Australian teenagers during the given period i.e from 1975 till the year 2000. In addition, it can be seen that the consumption of Fish and Chips has drastically decreased, where as there is a tough competition between pizza and hamburgers which have been eaten a lot in the given time but in the end Ham burger is the clear winner with the highest consumption by Australian teenagers.

    Looking in detail, till 1975 the consumption of Fish and Chips was at its peak it was eaten about 100 times a year by a Australian teenager, meanwhile Pizza and Hamburgers were at the lowest point and were being consumed at a very low level. Pizza around 5 times a year and Hamburger a little more at around 10 times a year. Furthermore, Fish and Chips experienced a fluctuation in its consumption and in 1980 its number dropped down to be eaten at about 85 times in a year but then again quickly increased in 1985 and regained it level to its peak point. On the other Hand, Australian teenagers kept eating more and more pizzas and hamburgers and its consumption constantly kept increasing during the given period.

    To summarize, the consumption of Fish and chips dramatically decreased to the point where it was being eaten less than 40 times a year in 2000. Secondly Pizza’s managed to land on second position, in 1995 it reached at its highest level of consumption being eaten more than 80 times a year and since then sustained its level. More over Hamburgers turned out to be the highest consumed fast food by Australian teenagers till the end of the duration the rise in its consumption did not stop.

    • Alam Alam says:

      Dear Amarnath,

      Consider following mistakes.

      – Keep the second sentence of introduction general by not giving it details. you could write like this “Overall, the consumption of fish and chips declined over the period, whereas the amount of pizza and hamburgers that were eaten increased.”
      – full stop missing after peak or comma.
      – “was” is missing after pizza.
      – Do not need to give summary if you have given overview in the introduction, it would be considered as repetition.

    Answer for sample two bar graph.
    The two bar charts demonstrate number of gender who studied full time or part time for further education in Britain during 1970 to 1990.
    Over all huge number of both male and female got full time education as compare to part time education.
    In 1970 largest number of male about 1000 who studied full time in Britain while there were not so much difference in between 1980 to 1990, during this period of time approximately 8200 and 8500 numbers of men respectively.
    On the other hand. women interest for further education in Britain gradually increased in subsequent period of years that is about 700 women in 1970 and reached its peak level of 1000 in 1990.
    While ratio of gender who studied part time was not in much number, there were only little bit difference in both male and female about 150 men and 100 women i 1970 slightly increased reached near about same numbers of both sex 200 in 1990.

    • Alam Alam says:

      Dear Reeta,

      – replace “or” with “and” in the first line.
      – use comma after overall like “Overall,”.
      – use “-d” with compare “as compared to”.
      – there is no verb before respectively.
      – there should be comma after “on the other hand” not full stop.
      – use ‘s with women to show possession ” women’s”
      – put gradually after increased “increased gradually”

  4. Jonathan Dias says:

    *The answer is for question number 7 flow chart*

    The chart demonstrates the process as to how used paper from banks and other businesses once discarded is recycled through 6 major steps.
    Furthermore, it can be seen that the procedure starts from the collection of wasted paper from banks and other businesses, once the collection is completed the waste paper is then sorted out by hand so that the unsuitable paper is removed and the recyclable ones are transported to the paper mill. In the paper mill the cleaning process starts which includes pulping and removal of other materials like staples etc. Once this is done it goes through another procedure called De-inking in which the ink and glue is removed from the paper. Moving towards the final step which is the paper making machine and this is the machine which manufactures usable paper.
    This is the procedure how paper is recycled that we common people use in our daily life.

    • Alam Alam says:

      Dear Dais,

      – First sentence needs to be formed well grammatically, specially this part “as to how used paper from”.
      – “Furthermore” is not proper word for beginning.

      The rest seems quite logical an coherent.

  5. reeta says:

    Aus for ques number 3 table…

    The table illustrates description of rail transport of UK, USA, Japan and Italy in 2007.
    The table shows population of UK and Italy almost used similar transport system, 5.9 of UK population used rail transport as approximately same 5.5 by Italian. there were also not much difference in distance covered by per passenger of UK and Italy population was 770 and 780 respectively and cargo carried of UK 22.2 and 21.9 that of Italy with just difference 0.3.

    • Alam Alam says:

      Dear Reeta,

      You have improved as compared to last time. Features are organized an logical but some grammatical errors with coherence need to be improved.

      Keep it up

    popular fast food by australian teeagers during year 1995 to 2000.

    Over all, it states that fast food like hamburgers and pizza
    were eaten below 20 , as individual were buying it 7-9 times
    per year, which start increasing dramatically
    in 1975.The hamburgers were becoming more favourite food,as it rose

    of 25 years and came to 40 times eaten per year.

    further it can be said that fish and chips might be decreased more in upcoming year,
    while it is sure that pizza and hamburger will remain at their point in coming years.

    • Alam Alam says:

      Dear Uzhair,
      – Do not mix introduction part with body.
      – Keep overview part with introduction and details explanation in the body part.
      – “increase” verb is wrong as graph refers to past so use “increased”
      – “remain” should have second form “remained”
      – other Grammar and coherence errors

      expected band 6.0

  8. Uzair ahmed mahar says:

    the Answer of two bar charts.

    The bar charts describes the information about full time and part time education of male and female in a period of 20 years in Britain.Moreover , it can be said that Females were more interesting in full and part time education as they increased in both throughout the period.

    From 1970 to 1990 the full time education of gender male had decreased.There were approximately 1000 of males doing full time which dipped to above 800.however, on other side females which were about 700 rose to around 1100 during these years . It shows an indirect proportion between them.
    The part time education in both genders had increased gradually, males in 1970 were about 100 which rose slowly and in 1990 it came to round about 200. Females which were thereabout 50 or less increased drastically to 200 in just 10 years and then it remained plateaued till 1990 as it was no change in females in a period of 10 years.

    • Alam Alam says:

      Dear Uzhair,

      – The liking phrase “moreover” is wrong. As You introduced graph in the first sentence and in second sentence you want to give overview not doing any addition. The right word that would fix here is “Overall”.

      – “it was no change” should be “there was no change”.

      You seem to be ok, just need more practice.

  9. Uzair ahmed mahar says:

    The answer of table.

    The table provides the details about the usage of rail transport in four different countries in a particular year 2007.Overall, it seems that in UK and Italy , usage of rail transport was slightly same.

    The numbers of passengers used rail transport in UK , Italy,USA and Japan were 5.9,5.5,0.3 and 27 respectively.The individuals were travelling 770-780 kilometers In UK and Italy ,80 in USA and 1,980 in Japan which was highest among all.
    Interestingly, USA was on top in using cargo, 2,820 billions of tons were carried from there in a single year.In UK,Japan and Italy usage of cargo was somewhat same as 21 to 23 billion tons were carried .

    • Alam Alam says:

      Dear Uzhair,

      – Do not use “seems” as it will show opinion.
      – “interestingly” is not appropriate word.

      keep practicing…

  10. Uzair ahmed mahar says:

    Answer of pie charts.

    The pie charts contrasts the outlay of a school in 1981,1991 and 2001 in the UK.

    It is stated that most spending as 40 to 50 percent of total spent on teacher salaries and on other side , the least spending was on insurance like 2-8 percent of 100 in each different year.
    The second most spending in school in a period of 20 years was on other work salaries which was 28 percent in 1981, 22 percent in 1991 and 15 percent in 2001.Its prospective indicate that it had dropped slightly since 1981 .
    The spendings on resources like book and furniture and equipment in school in year 1981 was same as 15 percent .Th expenditure on resources in 1991 rose to 20 percent and in 2001 it again dipped to 9 percent. Nevertheless, the furniture and equipment in 1991 dropped to 9 percent and in 2001 it increased drastically and came to 23 percent.

    To sum up, total school spending in different years was almost different.

  11. Uzair ahmed mahar says:

    Answer of Process chart.

    The diagram describes the process of how the Australian Bureau of Meteorology collect the up to date information of weather and how it make true forecast.overall , it shows that there are only four stages with which news forecast.

    In First two stages the information is collected by satellites , radars and drifting buoy and then they send their collected footages to analysis and forecasting zone . Radars sends their collected information to radar screen, satellite sends their information to satellite photo and drifting buoy sends its information to synoptic chat.
    In third stage computer prepares the broadcast with these three different source of information and in fourth stage the weather news is broadcasted on tv, radio e.t.c form where people know the up to minute news about weather in different cities of Australia.
