Number of vehicles per thousand people in China
Sample Answer 1:
A glance at the graph reveals some striking information about how many cars per thousand people in China owned in a period of twelve years. Overall, it can be seen that over the period, the car ownership in China increases remarkably.
In 1987 every forty Chinese on an average had a car and only in two years, every twenty persons owned a vehicle in China. The vehicle ownership kept on increasing and in 1993 each ten Chinese on an average owned a car. After that, the car ownership ratio in China upsurged and just in the next two years the vehicle number in China doubled. In the final four years, from 1995 to 1999, the total vehicle number in China rose overwhelmingly and in 1999 there were more than 400 vehicles in China for every thousand population.
In summary, the vehicle ownership in China increased dramatically and just in 12 years, the car ownership in China reached to almost a car for every two persons from only one car for forty persons.

Sample Answer 2:
The bar graph illustrates how many vehicles are owned by every thousand people in China over a 12-year period. Overall, it is clearly shown that there was a rapidly increasing trend in the ratio of vehicle ownership in China from 1987 to 1999.
Initially, in the year 1987, there was only about 25 vehicles per one thousand people, which was the lowest number over the given period. However, it rose slightly nearly to 75 vehicles per thousand people in 1991, which showed an increase of about 500 vehicles per thousand people. Interestingly, there was a sharp rise in the number of vehicles in one thousand people from 1991 to 1995. The number went up from around 75 to just below 200, with an increase of approximately 125 vehicles in one thousand people.
Last but not least, the number of vehicles per thousand people reached its highest point in 1999 with a figure of just above 400. In other words, there was a tremendous rise in the number of vehicle ownership of more than 200 from 1995 to 1999.
