Practice Question | IELTS Writing Task I (Academic) | 20 Minutes
You are expected to write a descriptive report of at least 150 words based on your understanding of the visual information such as a chart, diagram or graph, table, process etc. This task tests your ability to select and report the main features, to describe and compare data, identify significance and trends in factual information, or describe a process.
Question: The graphs below show the types of music albums purchased by people in Britain. Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information shown below.
The three graphs provide an overview of the types of music people purchase in the UK. At first glance we see that classical music is far less popular than pop or rock music.
While slightly more women than men buy pop music, the rock market is dominated by men with 30% buying rock, compared to 17% of women. From the first graph we see that interest in pop music is steady from age 16 to 44 with 20% of the population continuing to buy pop CDs after the age of 45.
The interest in rock music reaches its peak among the 25 to 34 year olds, though it never sells as well as pop. Interest also drops off after the age of 35 with an even sharper fall from age 45 onwards, a pattern which is the opposite to the classical music graph.
Based on your understanding of the above task come up with your own answer and share it in the comment.
