The bar chart shows the percentage of students proficient in a foreign language in six nations – China, Romania, Thailand, India, Russia, and Vietnam.
Among these nations, India is the country having the highest percentage of students able to communicate in a language other than their mother tongue, followed by Romania, Vietnam, Russia, Thailand & China.
In most of the nations, the percentage of female students having skill in using a foreign language outnumbers that of the males, though the difference is not significant. However, the only exception is Thailand where the quantity of males able to use a foreign language is higher than that of females.
Describe the given below bar graph #2
The bar chart shows the scores of three teams, A, B and C, in four consecutive seasons. In 2008, the score of Team B far exceeded that of the other two teams, standing at a massive 82 points compared to only 10 for team C and a very low 5 for Team A.
Over the next two years, the points for team B decreased quite considerably while team A’s point increased massively & Team C had managed only a small increase over this time. In the final year, team B remained ahead of the others as their points increased again to 55, while team A and C saw their points drop to 8 and 5 respectively.
Describe the given below bar graph #3
The bar chart shows information about people’s drinking behavior by age group in the US.
The highest proportion of those who never drink was in the 16 to 24 years group. The proportion tended to decrease with age. Only 40 per cent of people aged 65 to 74 had never drink. On the other hand, the percentage of those who had quit drinking tended to increase with age.
The percentage of those classed as heavy drinkers also showed a distinct pattern. People in middle age (35 to 54) tended to be the heaviest drinkers – approximately 13 per cent of the total. A relatively small proportion of those in the youngest age group, and an even smaller percentage of those in the oldest group (roughly 3 per cent) drink heavily.
Overall, age appears to be a significant factor in patterns of drinking behavior.
