Academic IELTS Writing task 1 Sample 36

Sample Answer:
The given illustration presents information on the Hawaiian Island Chain centre of the Pacific Ocean. As is observed from the diagram, the Hawaiian island chain directly affects the Pacific tectonic plate and because of it, this plate shifts around 7-9 centimetre per year.

As is observed from the graph, below the Pacific Ocean, the Hawaiian island chain stands as several volcanos which are almost 80 million years old. These volcanos stand over the Pacific plate and the eruptions of these volcanos’ created a new volcano just over the Magna spume. The Pacific plate is situated on solid dense rock and because of the new volcano development; the hot spot spume remained static. The eruption process of the volcano’s starts from as deep as 2800 km and that has spat the solid rock layer.

Major islands within 100 km of this area are Maui, Molokai, Oahu and Kauai and because of the eruption and sliding of the plates, the centre of the Pacific Ocean is ever changing.

The diagram illustrates the geographical location of Hawaiian island chain which is located in the centre of the Pacific Ocean. Overall, Hawaii is the largest island among the eight islands in the area and shift of the Pacific plate contributes to the creation of new volcanoes.

According to the illustration, there are eight major islands in the Hawaiian island and among them, the Hawaii is the largest and Niihau seems like the smallest. Moreover, the Hawaiian island chain is located at the top of Pacific plate while shift around 8 cm on an average in a year and contributes to the eruption. The solid dense rocks hold the Pacific plate and at the bottom of the dense rock area, some eruption process begins which is as down as approximately 3 km. The created ‘hot spot’ due to the eruption remains static and a thin flow of Magma Spume goes up to the Pacific plate. From there the youngest volcano develops and this creation is basically the result of several eruptions. The oldest volcanoes in this region are almost 80 million years old.

Diagram question:
The diagram below gives the information about the Hawaiian island chain in the centre of the Pacific Ocean.

Sample Answer:
The given diagram illustrates the information about the geographical distribution of Hawaiian island chain centre in the Pacific Ocean. Overall, Hawaiian island chain stands on the Pacific plate and some of the volcanoes located on the Hawaiian island chain is more than 80 million years old.

As is observed from the diagram, the Hawaiian island chain is situated on the unstable Pacific plates which rest on the hard dense rocks. The solid dense rock which is incomplete at one point and eruptions started from there lead to the formation of Hot Spot spume that remains static but from here when it enters tectonic plates this become Hot Magma and later on it comes out through the upper most holes and become the youngest volcano of Hawaiian island. Due to this, the Pacific plate moves away each year about 7-9 cm from islands. Eruption begins at 2883 km below of the Pacific Ocean and many eruptions lead to the formation of the youngest Hawaiian island volcano. Hawaiian island chain centre also has a few oldest volcanoes those are 80 million years old. It has main 8 islands named from the north towards the south are Hawaii, Kahoolawe, Maui, Lanai, Molokai, Oahu, Kauai, and Niihau. Hawaii island is the biggest among them.

It seems the answer did not cover everything and could not present a comprehensive description!

There are few points which I want to highlight.
- It is wrongly mentioned as a graph, although it is a diagram
- Spitted word is used.

Why it is mentioned as a graph?
