Sample Answer 1:
The line graph illustrates the ratio of young UK population who have had a vegetable diet from the year 1960 and it also forecasts this trend till 2020. A glance at the graph reveals that the percentages of young people in the UK who were vegetarian kept on increasing till the 80’s and then witnessed a steady decrease. After the year 2000, this ratio also kept on increasing.
Now getting back to the details, 5% adolescent in the UK had vegetable diet in 1970 and this ratio steadily increased till 1980. In this year, the ratio of vegetarian young in the UK was the highest with just over 16%. However, the percentages of vegetarian youth in this country gradually decreased and reached to the bottom around 1997 with just 3%-3.5%. After the year 2000, the percentage of young vegetarian again kept on going up and with some minor fluctuation, it will reach to around 12 percentage in the year 2020.
Sample Answer 2:
Answer: The line chart illustrates data on the ratio of vegetarian teenagers in the UK between 1960 and 2020. As is observed from the graph, a vegetarian diet followed by UK adolescents increased dramatically between 1960 and 1970 and it is predicted that it will go up in the future despite a significant drop after the 80s.
From 1960 to 1980, UK adolescents following a vegetarian diet rose modestly to nearly 15% in 1980 that was the highest proportion of young vegetarian in the UK. There was a dramatic dip, followed by a moderate rise afterwards. As is presented from the graph, after culminating the vertex in 1980, there was a decrease over the next 20 years. Since then it is expected to increase progressively. From 1990 to 2000, this ratio fluctuated and touched the lowest point in this period with just over 3%. It is seen from the data that after some fluctuations, the percentage of teenage vegetarian dieters increased gradually until 2010 and it is predicted that it will remain almost the same over the next decade.
