Where the money goes

Budget on different sectors by the UAE government in 2000

Sample Answer 1:
The pie chart shows the national expenditure by the United Arab Emirates government in 2000. Generally speaking, the UAE government had a budget of over 300 billion AED and the highest portion of this budget was spent on social security and health & social services.

As is given in the diagram, the UAE government spent more than 300 billion AED on eight different important sectors in 2000. Social security for the citizens cost the highest budget and it was exactly 100 billion AED. Health and personal social services, on the other hand, required more than 50 billion and this was the second largest budget money allocation for the UAE government in 2000. The UAE authority used 38 billion for education, 17 billion for law and order and 13 billion for job, industry and agriculture. Defence sector cost them 22 billion which was slightly lower than the debt interests the government paid in this year. Housing, heritage and environment got 15 billion which was nearly the same as it was allocated for law and order. Finally, 9 billion was spent on the transportation sector and 23 million for other sectors which are not specifically mentioned in the chart.  


Model Answer 2:
The pie chart illustrates the national expenditure of the United Arab Emirates in 2000. Generally speaking, the UAE government spent over 300 billion United Arab Emirates Dirham (AED) on different sectors in this year and the highest proportion of this expenditure went on ensuring the social security of citizens.

To maintain the social soundness, the UAE government spent 100 billion AED, the highest, whilst, the transportation system received only 9 billion, the lowest budget allocation in this year. Besides, healthcare and personal social services demanded over 50 billion AED which was even higher than the cumulative budget allocation for the education and defence sectors in the UAE in 2000.

The industrial, agricultural and employment sector received 13 billion AED which was 4 billion fewer than the national budget for the law and order sector. Moreover, the government contributed 23 billion in debt interest and 15 billion for the housing, heritage and environment sectors. All other expenditure summed up at 23 billion and it is obvious that the government paid overhead to ensure the social security compared to other aspects of the country.

The provided chart depicts the amount of expenditure by the UAE government in distinct areas in the year 2000. A glance at the chart reveals that the combination of health and personal services and social security holds the disbursement of almost half of the total budget.

Yearly expenditures of the UAE government in various sectors in the year 2000 are outlined in the pie chart. It is obvious that social security demanded the highest national budget in the UAE in 2000 as it singly required 100 billion AED out of the approximate total budget of 300 billion AED.

As the data suggests, the UAE administration had a budget over 300 billion AED of which 100 billion went on social security of the citizens. Health and personal social services necessitated more than 50 billion while additional 17 billion was disbursed for law and order. Debt interest obligated the authority 23 billion which was just one billion higher than that of the national defence budget. Education budget was 38 billion and that was almost three times higher than that of agriculture, employment and industrial sector cost but significantly lower than that of social security costs. Finally, housing and environment sector were allocated 15 billion AED and rest of the sectors received 23 billion AED in 2000.

Overall, the state spends the highest amount of money on the social sectors such as social security, health and personal social services and education while transport, environment and employment sectors received the comparatively lower amount of funding.

'Depict' is not a good word to use here. It is not a drawing or painting. Words such as give, present, compare are also ok to use.
