Sample Answer 1:
The graphs compare the number of deaths caused by six diseases in Someland in 1990 with the amount of research funding allocated to each of those diseases. It can be clearly seen that the amount of research funding in many cases did not correlate with the seriousness of the disease in terms of numbers of deaths.
In 1990 there were around 0.2 million deaths from AIDS, 0.1 million deaths from leprosy, 0.3 million deaths from tropical diseases, 0.5 million deaths from diarrhoea, 0.4 million deaths from malaria and 1.8 million deaths from TB. These figures can be contrasted with the amount of funding allocated for each disease. In 1990 AIDS received 180 million dollars in research funding, leprosy 80 million dollars in research funding, tropical diseases 79 million dollars in research funding, diarrhoea 60 million dollars in research funding, malaria 50 million dollars and TB 20 million dollars in research funding.
In conclusion, it is clear that funding allocation for disease research in Someland is not wholly determined by the number of deaths for which each disease is responsible in a given year.

Model Answer 2:
The first bar graph presents information on Medical research funding in Someland while the second graph shows the number of death in this area from seven diseases in 1990. As is observed from the given diagrams, the highest amount of funding was done to prevent AIDS while the highest death could be observed from the TB disease.
As is presented in the first bar graph, more than 400 million was funded in Someland’s Medical research and out of this approximately 175 million went on AIDS funding. Leprosy and Tropical Diseases funding raised about 75 million each and the lowest funding was raised for TB. Malaria and Diarrhea finding received 50 and 60 million consecutively in Someland.
The second bar graph shows that the highest number of death in Someland was caused by the TB diseases. It shows a relationship between the Medical research funding on a disease and the death caused by this diseases in this area. Since the lowest amount was funded for TB, the highest number of death was caused by this diseases. A very similar trend could be observed for all the other six diseases and the lowest number of death was from AIDS which got the highest Medical research funding in Someland.
