Model answer 01:

The bar chart describes the number of houses built in two neighboring cities, Derby and Nottingham, Between 2000 and 2009.

Overall, the number of houses that were erected in Derby exceeded upwards the quantity constructed in Nottingham. The trend for the former was decidedly upwards, with Derby experiencing a steady rise from 40 new houses in the first year, to just under 120 during the 2003. Over the next 4 years of decade, new houses construction in Derby remained constant at just under 120. This is in sharp contrast to the last two years when the number of houses that went up in Derby leapt, first to 280 and then to 350 houses.

Houses building in Nottingham, by comparison, was much more erratic. In the first two years of the decade, more houses were erected in Nottingham than in Derby. In 2002, however, construction declined to only 20. Over the next three years, houses numbers rose steadily, only to drop practically to zero in 2006. There was then a dramatic surge in 2007 with over 200 houses being built. While in 2008 saw house building in Nottingham plummeting to only 10, in 2009 the number of new houses rocketed to 270, a rise of more than 2600 % on the previous year.

Test tip: If you do not begin your sentence with a time expression, in many cases, particularly those involving line graphs, the time frame is given and is an important element of the visual and will need to be mentioned. For this reason it is important that you know how to use the common expressions of time, and that you revise them from any normal grammar book if they cause you difficulties. Here are the common ones:in for between -and during before from – to / until after

Model answer 02:

The given chart shows data on the total houses built in Derby and Nottingham cities from 2000 to 2009. As is presented in the bar graph, more houses were built in Derby than Nottingham in later years. According to the bar graph, in the year 2000, only 50 houses were built in Nottingham where this number was around 45 in Derby. After two years, this trend changed and more houses were build in Derby than built in Nottingham. Till 2005 the trend remained almost same and in 2005 more than 100 houses were build in Derby while less than 80 houses were built in Nottingham. Interestingly the number of houses build in Nottingham were very few (less than 10) in 2006 and 2008 while it was much higher in Derby. In 2007 a reverse trend could be observed where more than 190 houses were build in Nottingham compared to the only 110 houses in Derby. In the finally year (2009) more than 240 houses were built in Derby while 250 houses were made in Nottingham. In summary, over time the number of houses build in Derby increased almost in each year while this showed some anomaly in Nottingham where less houses were build than Derby except in 2000 and in 2007.
