Wheat exports over three different areas

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 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.

Line Graph Question: The graph below shows the differences in wheat exports over three different areas.

Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information shown below.

Answer:
The line graph provided shows the wheat export in three different parts of the word between 1985 and 1990. Overall, the wheat export from Australia decreased over the time while the wheat exports by the European community had increased over this period. Furthermore, Canada's export after a rise and a fall stayed in its level.

In 1985, Canada exported about 18 million tons wheat and was the highest wheat exporter in this year. But wheat export of Canada decreased gradually in 1986 then increased to 25 million tons in three years. After that, this amount decreased sharply to 14 million tons in 1989 and in 1990 returned to its initial stage. European community's export, on the other hand, fluctuated during the 5 years; it exported 17 million tons wheat in 1985 and after a year it decreased to 14 million tons. Finally, this quantity went up to 15. Between 1987 and 1988 it stayed constant and rose gradually to 21 tons in 1990. Finally, Australia's wheat export had a rise of 3 million tons at first year but after that, it dropped to 12 million tons until 1990.

The line chart illustrates the variations in wheat exports in five consecutive years from three areas namely, Australia, Canada and European Community between 1985 to 1990. The wheat export unit was measured in million tons. Overall, wheat export from these three regions showed some fluctuations.

The Canadian wheat export both in 1985 and 1990 was around 19 million tons, with some fluctuations in between. European Community exported 17 million tons wheat in 1985 and this quantity increased to over 20 tons in 1990. Finally, Australian wheat export amounted exactly 15 million tons in 1985 and it increased by 1.5 million tons in the next year. From this point, the quantity kept on decreasing and reached to just over 10 million tons in 1990.

The given chart compares a number of wheat exports in three various regions namely Australia, Canada and European community during 5 years between 1985 and 1990 in million tons.

As is presented as a census of a perusal Australia, Canada and European community exported 15,17 and 19 million tons wheat initially in 1985 respectively. The volume of Australian export increased a little in 1986 and after that, this volume declined steadily with a gentle slope and reached to 11 million tons in 1990 as a nadir. Canada’s wheat export in comparison was less in 1986 but this volume swelled up rapidly and received to 25million as the summit in 1988 and suddenly plunged till 1989 and rebound to close 20 million in 1990. In similar fashion, initial wheat export in European community decreased negligibly and oscillated near 15 million tons until 1988. After that, it lunged remarkably and reached 22 in 1990.

In summary European community progressed better in terms of wheat export during these time and had the minimum fluctuation but Canada exported the highest quantity of wheat in 1988 which was 25 million tons.

The given chart depicts amount of wheat exports in three different spheres namely Australia, Canada and European community between 1985 and 1990.

As is presented as a census of a perusal in the provided illustration, in 1985 these amounts were 19, 17 and 15 million for Canada, the European community and Australia respectively. These proportions decreased for Canada and European community in 1986 but the ratio for Australia increased. After that, the portion of Australia declined and reached to 11 million in 1990. Canada had two big fluctuations first it swelled up rapidly and met 25 million as the summit in 1988 and second, it plunged to under 15 million in one year and then rocketed on and received to 19 million in 1990. In another scenario for European community it was almost same without any noticeable vibration until 1988 but after that, its ratio grew up and achieve 22 million of tonnes in 1990.

In summary, Canada had the most changes in those years and exported maximum amount of wheat between other regions in 1988 and Australia produced minimum between other in 1990.
