    The following line graph illustrates the distinct causes of air pollution in the UK between 1990 and 2005.

    Overall, the air pollution due to industry is decreasing linearly till the end of the period, however the pollution caused by household and transport experienced both upward and downward trend.

    In 1990, pollution from industry origin which is approximately 5 MT, it is higher than transport and household. It is slightly declining till 1993, after that there is a rapid surge till 1996, which is around 3 MT. From 1996 to 2002, pollution is linearly lowering to 2 MT and finally it become steady by 2005.

    Both household and transport caused ups and downs in pollution and had similar pattern till 1999, later pollution from transport becomes steady till 2005 and pollution due to households is rapidly declining and roughly becomes 0.2 MT by the period end. The total air pollutants of these three sources are drastically reducing from about 7 MT in 1990 to 3 MT in 2005.

      he following line graph illustrates the distinct causes of air pollution in the UK between 1990 and 2005.

      Overall, the air pollution due to industry is decreasing linearly till the end of the period, however the pollution caused by (households) and transport experienced both (an) upward and downward trend.

      In 1990, pollution(air pollutants/contaminants) from industry origin(originated) which is(was) approximately 5 MT, it( was )higher than transport and households. It is(was) slightly declining(declined) in 1993, after that there was a rapid surge till 1996, which is(was) around 3 MT. From 1996 to 2002, pollution is(was) linearly lowering to 2 MT and finally it became steady by 2005.

      Both households and transport caused ups and downs in pollution and had similar pattern till 1999, later pollution from transport becomes steady till 2005 and pollution due to households is rapidly declining and roughly becomes 0.2 MT by the period end. The total air pollutants of these three sources are drastically reducing from about 7 MT in 1990 to 3 MT in 2005.

      (The total number of pollutants emitted into the air gradually reduced to about 5 million tonnes by 2005. Further, the industry with the highest amount of contaminants with 5.5 million tonnes in 1990 gradually declined to about 2 million tonnes in 2005. Despite the figures for transport and household emissions being equal at the beginning of the period, there was a slight increase in the number of air pollutants from transport to 1 million tonnes by 2005, while the household emission dropped to a negligible level at 0.1 million tonnes at the end of the period.)

      Feedback:

      Use words like air pollutants, contaminants etc as this graph is highlighting those points.

      You may want to use past tense when you are explaining graphs.

      Last paragraph is a sample para for your reference.

    The line graph illustrates four causes of air pollution in UK during 1990 to 2005. Units are measured in million tonnes.

    Overall, industry and total air pollutants decreased drastically over the years, whereas transport and household pollutants have more or less similar emission throughout the duration.

    Firstly, total air pollutants appears to be under 8 in 1990 and begun decreasing to 4 till 2005. However, transportation displays to be static in the period of 15 years, while slightly decreasing in 1999.

    Secondly, pollution caused due to industries is just under 6 million tonnes and starts dipping dramatically to 2 million tonnes till 2005. Furthermore, household hazardous wastes emit pollution around 1 million tonnes in 1990 continuing to drop to almost 0 in 2005.

    The given line graph describes various reasons causing air pollution in the UK between 1990 and 2005.

    Overall, the air pollution due to all industry is decreasing linearly over the span of five years. The air pollutants consists of Transport, Industry, Households where household and Transport have a zig zag trend. On the other hand, pollution caused by Industry is strictly decreasing.

    Initially in the year 1990, the pollution from industry( 5 million tonnes )is higher than transport and household. There is slightly decrease in pollution due to industry upto 1993. From 1993-1996 there is steep decrease in pollution and there after the slope of decreasing has diminished till 2005.

    However in 1990 pollution due to households and transports is 1 million tonnes but later they have many ups and downs in trend. After this zig zag trend, from 1999 pollution caused by transport is strictly increasing and for household it is strictly decreasing upto 2005

    All in all the total pollutants emitted in air has decreased from 7 million tonnes to 4 million tonnes till 1999 with constant slope. Thereafter from 1999-2002 the slope has decreased. Later from 2002-2005 the slope of decreasing has become greater and finally got a minima of 3 million tonnes of total air pollutants.

      Initially, pollution from industry (5 million metric tons) was greater than pollution from transportation and households.Up until 1993, there was a slight decrease in pollution due to industry.There was a steep decrease in pollution from 1993 to 1996, and the slope of decrease has since slowed until 2005.

      However, pollution from households and transportation was 1 million metric tonnes in 1990, but the trend later experienced many ups and downs.Following this zigzag pattern, from 1999 to 2005, pollution caused by transportation was strictly increasing, while it was strictly decreasing for household use.

      All in all the total pollutants emitted in air have decreased from 7 million tonnes to 4 million tonnes till 1999 with constant slope. Thereafter from 1999-2002 the slope has decreased. Later from 2002-2005 the slope of decreasing has become greater and finally got a minima of 3 million tonnes of total air pollutants.

    This graph depicts the causes of air contamination in the United Kingdom between the year 1990 to 2005.

    Overall, Industrial and total air pollutants have significantly decreased throughout the years whereas both a rising and a decrease tendency could be seen in the pollution brought on by domestic households and transportation.

    The total amount of toxins discharged into the atmosphere had been decreased linearly to roughly 3 million tonnes until 1999; later dropped with a modest decrease till 2005. Pollutants released by industry peaked in 1990 and fell dramatically in the following years (up to 2005.), from 5.5 million tonnes to 2 million tonnes.

    The statistics for domestic and transportation emissions appeared to be identical at the start of the period, however, the amount of air pollutants from residential sources decreased approximately to 0.9 million tonnes by the year 2005, whereas transportation emissions climbed somewhat 0.1 million tonnes in the last years.

    The following line graph illustrates few major causes of air pollution and their trajectory in the UK from 1990 to 2005.

    In hindsight, air pollution caused by industry has been decreasing considerably till the end of 2005 in comparison to other sources like households and transport which remain more or less the same over the years.

    In 1990, pollution caused by industry was approximately 5.5 Million Tons(MT), which is particularly high in comparison to others pollutants. However, after a few short years we can see a major decline in the pollutants caused by industry which reached all-time low of 3 MT in 1996, declining steadily to 2 MT till the year 2005.

    Coming towards sources like households and transport both causing around 1 MT of pollution in 1990 see a similar trajectory through the timeline with households also seeing upward trend in 1999 although an insignificant one. Towards the end of year 2005 we experience that pollution from remains the same at 1 MT but surprisingly pollution from households decreases to 0.2 MT approx. The air pollution from all sources combined was last recorded in 2005 being at 3.2 MT approx from the initial of 7 MT.

    The following line graph illustrates the distinct cause of air pollution in the UK between 1990 to 2005.

    Overall the pollution is decreasing linearly till the end of the period but the pollution caused by household and transport show both upward and downward tend.

    The pollution caused by industries from 1993 to 1996 had a fast downfall from 5M to 3M and from 1996 to 2005 there was steady decrease.

    Both transportation and household caused ups and down in pollution but had similar patterns till 1999, later transportation was steady and household was declining. However the all three pollution had a drastic and rapid downfall of 3M from 7M in the year 1990 to 1999.

    The above line graph illustrates different sources of air pollutants in the UK between 1990 and 2005.

    Overall, the total air pollutants and industry sources depicted a steep decrease in emission, whereas the households and transport sources experienced both an upward and downward trend.

    In 1990, the total air and industry pollutants contributed above 4 million tonnes in emission respectively. Both the rates decreased sharply over the period of time reaching nearly 2 and 3 million tonnes in 2005. In the meantime, the total air pollutants reduced to 4 million tonnes in 1999 and remained steady until 2002. During 2002-2005, it experienced a rapid decrease to 3 million tonnes while the industry sources showed from 1990 to 2002 and remained steady till 2005.

    In early 1990, the households and transport sources equally contributed in pollution and remained steady until 1993. However, the household sources showed an increase from 1996 – 1999 and then dramatically declined to nearly zero in 2005. In the meanwhile, the transport sources varied linearly till 1999 and experienced a slight increase thereby remaining constant till 2005.

    The line graph gives the information about various air pollutants and their amounts in UK from the period of 1990 to 2005.

    In summary, except transport all the three lines (total air pollutants, households, and industry) shows a go down trend. The transport depicts almost a plateau stage.

    In 1990, the highest reason for pollution is industry, which is more than 5 million tonnes. The amount is significantly reduced up to 2002 and remains constant till 2005. From the information shown on graph it can be seen that the households source depicts steady state from a time line of 1990 to 1993, later it presents narrow fluctuations and reached almost zero in 2005. In corollary, the transport roughly paralleled till 1999 and after that gives a minimal increase commencing from 1999.

    Moving on to the remaining data, the total air pollutants illustrate a sharp decline from 7 to 4 million tonnes in a time span of 9 years. Later it unchanged for a period of 3 years and ended up approximately 3 million tonnes in 2005.

    The graph illustrates how various factors, namely transport, industry and household contribute towards the total air pollutants from year 1990 to 2005.

    Total air pollutants has been in a consistent downtrend and hit a low of a little over 5MT in 2005. Industrial emission has been the most significant contributor to total air pollutants throughout the stipulated period.

    Industrial pollutants has shown a dramatic fall from approximately 6MT in 1990 to just over 2MT in 2005. That is roughly 67% decline in 15 years. Though it remains the highest contributor to total air pollutants, its overall share has been marginally decreasing.

    For both, transport and household pollutants, the trend has been fairly steady up till 1993. Since 1993, these both factors have shown negative correlation. In 2005, emission from transport stood at its all time high of approx. 1MT while, household pollutants bottomed out in year 2005.
