Sample Answer 1:
The given line graph compares the wheat exports over three different parts of the world namely Australia, Canada and European Community from 1985 to 1990. As is presented in the graph, the wheat export in Australia decreased over time while the export in Canada and European countries increased with some fluctuations.
According to the graph, around 15 to 20 million tons of wheat was exported to Australia, Canada and European community. This amount decreased slightly in 1986 reaching at around 15 million tons and from that point the export quantity in Australia kept on decreasing and reached just over 10 million tons in 1990. In the meantime, the amount increased sharply in Canada up until 1988 and then there was a quick decline and finally it reached to around 19 million tons in 1990. Finally, the wheat export in European Community increased gradually over the years and reached to over 20 million tons in 1990.
Sample Answer 2:
The line graph elucidates the wheat exportation of three regions, namely Canada, Australia and European community from 1985 to 1990. As can be seen, Canada was the leader in wheat trading till 1988 and after that, the European Community became the leading wheat exporter among the given regions.
Initially, in 1985, Canada exported the highest quantity of wheat which was approximately 19 million tonnes. The wheat export in this year by European Community was about 17 million tonnes and finally 15 million tonnes of wheat was traded by Australia in this year. Next year, only Australia managed to export more wheat than the previous year's quantity, while it declined in case of Canada and European Community. In the next two years (1987 and 1988) the amount of wheat exported by Canada rocketed and reached to 25 million tonnes while it was 15 million tonnes for the European Community and far less for Australia. In 1989, the amount of wheat export by Canada dropped very sharply while it was quite the opposite for the European Community. The final year's export figure shows that European Community shipped just over 20 million tonnes of wheat compared to Canada's just below 20 million tonnes. In this year Australia consigned just over 10 million tonnes of wheat.
