The graph compares the rate of smoking in men and women in Someland between the years 1960 and 2000.

It can be clearly seen that the rate of smoking for both men and women was declining for the last 20 years and that fewer women had smoked throughout the period. In 1960, 600 men in every 1,000 was smoking. This number decreased gradually to 500 by 1974 and continued to decrease but more steeply to 250 in 2000.

In contrast, the rate of smoking in women in 1960 was very low at only 80 in every 1,000. By 1968 this increased to 170, and increased again but more steeply to 320 in 1977. The rate of female smokers then remained stable at 320 until 1984 at which point the figures began to decline and had dropped to 200 by 2000.

In conclusion we can see that the rate of smoking in men dropped throughout the whole period but was always at a higher level than the female figures. The rate of smoking in women increased until 1977 but then decreased for the rest of the period.

The charts below show the percentage of men and women in different weight groups in England between 1993 and 2002.

Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

You should write at least 150 words.

The two charts divide the population in England into four different weight cat- egories and show the proportion of men and women in each category over a 9-year period.

In 1993, a little less than half the male population in England (47%) was within the healthy weight range, but the percentage dropped to 40% in 1998 and continued to decline slightly to about 38% in 2002.

By comparison, the percentage of men who were overweight had an opposite trend, rising in two stages from 42% in 1993 to 45% in 1998 and finally 46% in 2002. During the same time, there was a modest increase in the obesity rate in the male population from 10% to 15%, while the proportion of dangerously obese men remained low at about 2%.

Compared with the weight development in the male population, that of female had a quite similar trend over the same period. Women who had healthy weight and who were overweight constituted the vast majority of the female population, while the remaining 15% to 20% were considered obese or dangerously obese.

The chart below shows the percentage of people watching movies between 1990 and 2010 in UK.

Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

You should write at least 150 words.

The given line graph illustrates information on the percentage of people who went to the movies in the United Kingdom between 1990 and 2010. The people’s attendance is divided into four different age groups.

Overall, younger people seemed to, and are predicted to, be more active in movie going than their older counterparts. However, all four age groups showed a gradual increase in attendance numbers during the given period, except for a slight drop between 1995 and 2000.

To be specific, a larger percentage of people between the ages of 24 and 34 went to, and are expected to, go to the cinema than those in any other age group. Approximately 51% of the respondents from this age group are expected to attend movies in 2010 compared with only 38% in 1990. Even in the group that had the smallest number of movie goers, those between the ages of 44 and 54, there was an increase of 6% in their attendance.

You should write at least 150 words.

The line graph compares the percentage of people in three countries who used the Internet between 1999 and 2009.

It is clear that the proportion of the population who used the Internet increased in each country over the period shown. Overall, a much larger percentage of Canadians and Americans had access to the Internet in comparison with Mexicans, and Canada experienced the fastest growth in Internet usage.

 In 1999, the proportion of people using the Internet in the USA was about 20%. The figures for Canada and Mexico were lower, at about 10% and 5% respectively. In 2005, Internet usage in both the USA and Canada rose to around 70% of the population, while the figure for Mexico reached just over 25%.

By 2009, the percentage of Internet users was highest in Canada. Almost 100% of Canadians used the Internet, compared to about 80% of Americans and only 40% of Mexicans.

The chart below shows the changes in car ownership in Great Britain between 1961 and 2001.

Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

You should write at least 150 words.

The line graph shows the variation in the percentage of households that owned no car, one car, and two or more cars in Britain during a 40-year period from 1961 to 2001.

As can be seen from the chart, the car was a much less popular household item in the 1960s than in 2001. Nearly 65% of British families did not have a car of their own in 1961, about one third had only one car, and no families owned two or more cars.

 The next 20 years, however, saw a significant increase in car ownership. In 1981, 15% of British families owned two or more cars, while the percentage of families with one car reached a peak of 50%. During the same period, the percentage of households with no car decreased sharply to approximately 35%.

From 1981 to 2001, an increasing number of families purchased an additional car, pushing the percentage of households with two or more cars to a record high of nearly 30%. Families with only one car were still the majority, but their percentage had dropped slightly to about 43% by 2001. The percentage of families without a car, not surprisingly, kept decreasing to less than 30% at the end of the 40-year period.
