Cinema viewing figures for films by country

Sample Answer 1:
The given data compares the movie audiences from four different genres across four different countries. In general, action movies were the most popular among the audiences while Indian cinema goers were the highest in number.

According to the table data, approximately 25 million audiences in India watched movies which represented the highest number of movie audiences while with slightly more than 23 million viewers, Ireland proclaims the second position. New Zealand has got about 20 million movie goers while it was the least (about 18 million) in Japan.

Indian audiences preferred action, romance and comedy movies while they ignored the horror movies. Action movies got the highest number of audiences in these countries with about 30 million total audiences. Romance movies were enjoyed by just over 20 million people and it was the least preferred movie category in Ireland. Comedy stands at the third position in terms of its total audience and was least popular in New Zealand. Horror movies attracted the least number of movie lowers but were most popular in Ireland. More than 6 million Irish watched horror movies and that was higher than the audiences of romantic and comedy movies.

Sample Answer 2:
The table compares the number of audiences in millions who enjoyed four types of movies such as action, romance, comedy and horror in four different countries- India, Ireland, New Zealand, and Japan.  The table also shows the audience total for each of the four given countries.

The overall trend can be seen that Indian people watch more movies in cinema than people in other three countries, while Japanese people are the least in terms of their number of watching movies in cinema halls. The other significant trend is that the action movies are the most favourable movie type among people in these four countries. The total numbers of viewers are around 30 million and in each country, it is around 7.5 million. In Japan and India , horror movies are the least popular movie genre- the total number of audience are 2.5 and 2.2 million respectively, while comedy movies are the least enjoyed in New Zealand  with the total number of viewers around 3.9 million.

On the other hand, romance movies are less popular in Ireland but in India, they are the second favourable movies. From this evidence, we can conclude that horror movies are the least preferred movies then the comedy in the second least preferred type while action movies are the most popular and romance movies in the second most watched movies.

I am so grateful to you. One request: Please provide estimated band scores as well.
The supplied table compares the viewing of different genres of cinema (action, romance, comedy and horror) in four distinct nations, namely, India, New Zealand, Ireland and Japan.

At a glance, it is clear that the highest number of viewers are from India and action movies are the most preferred form of cinema.

As is observed, viewers of action movies in each of the four countries are more than 7 million and collectively it amounts to almost one-third of the total viewers. Japanese and New Zealanders have the same viewership for romantic movies, that is, 4.5 million viewers, while India and Ireland account for the highest and lowest numbers of viewers, 7.5 million and 3.8 million, respectively. For comedy films, viewers from Ireland equal 5.5 million and in India, it is just one per cent more while New Zealand and Japan have a difference of only point one million viewers, with Japan standing at 4 million. Both India and Japan has less than 3 million viewers of horror movies, while New Zealand has almost 5 million views and Ireland has more than 6 million views, which is twice of that of India and Japan.
