The line graph illustrates the comparison of the international conferences conducted in three different capital cities from 1980 through 2010.
We can observe that over the years, the number of international conferences in City C witnessed a massive increase until 2000, while the number of such conferences in cities A and B gradually dropped.
Initially, in the year 1980, City A organized 35 and City B hosted 30 International conferences, respectively. However, there were several differences in hosting the conferences between cities A and B until 2005. In 2005, an equal number of conferences, around 27, were conducted in both cities. Interestingly, by the end of the year 2010, City B increased its international conferences to 26 and took over city A which conducted only 24 conferences.
There was no conference held in City C in 1980. Between 1981 and 1990, the number of conferences rose substantially from 0 to 20 in City C, which kept increasing till 25 in 1995. Thereafter, city C hosted many conferences. In contrast, there were hardly any conferences in cities A and B, which led to some fluctuations. The figures in city C peaked at 35 in 2000. However, by the end of the period, all three cities followed a downward trend.
