Sample Answer:
The given line graph shows the number of cinema-going UK people and classifies these viewers in four age groups. As is observed from the graph, people over 40 years old went to movies more than the younger people of the UK.

As is observed from the line graph, the people of 44 to 54 years-old attended cinema more than the people of other age groups who are less than 44 years old. Only 15% of the UK citizens who were between 14 to 24 years old attended in cinema in 1990 while this percentage increased with the increase of age group. In this same year, more than 35% people over 40 years attended the cinema. It is clear from the data that, the people in UK trend to attend cinema more with the increase of their age.
