    The pie charts illustrate the primary reasons that people use cycle and car to reach their workplace. Comfort and health and fitness are the major individual reasons for using car and cycle respectively.

    Workers highly prefer car due to the comfort it provides and this reason stands with 40%, while the major factors that causes people to use cycle is health and fitness and less pollution, 30% each. Another major factor influencing the dependency on car is distance to work which is slightly higher than a fifth.


    Other elements, that is faster than cycling, need to carry things to work and safer than cycling tends the workers to drive to work and these are at 14% for the first two factors and 11% for the other one. Similarly, remaining factors resulting to cycle are no parking issues, zero cost and faster when compared to that of driving, these are at 15%, 13% and 12% respectively.

      The pie charts illustrate the primary reasons that ( for which) people use cycle and car to reach their workplace. Comfort and health and fitness are the major individual reasons for using car and cycle respectively.

      Workers highly prefer car due to the comfort it provides and this reason stands with (at) 40%, while the major factors that causes people to use cycle is health and fitness and less pollution, 30% each. Another major factor influencing the dependency on car is distance to work which is slightly higher than a fifth.

      Other elements, that is faster than cycling, need to carry things to work and safer than cycling tends (tend) the workers to drive to work and these are at 14% for the first two factors and 11% for the other one. Similarly, remaining factors resulting to cycle are no parking issues, zero cost and faster when compared to that of driving, these are at 15%, 13% and 12% respectively.

      Feedback :

      The response achieves the task because the data from the pie chart is selected and summarized appropriately. Also, it can be seen that comparisons are made, which you are told to do in the rubric. The comparisons are clear from the language of comparison and contrast.

      The summary is also well-organized. The writer decides first to compare the two largest items in each pie chart in the first paragraph, then go on to summarize the smaller items each in a separate paragraph. It is therefore easy to follow the description. Grammatical range is satisfactory barring a few grammar inaccuracies with conjunctions.

    The pie chart illustrates the reason for people to choose a cycle or a car to reach their work. Overall it can be seen that people who cycle consider health and fitness and less pollution as their main reason while car users choose comfort and distance to work as their primary reason.

    People prefer cars to work because it provides them comfort and it is also given the highest percent which is at 40 and the major reason for cycle users was health and fitness which stood at 30%. The other reason which is seconded by comfort for car users is the distance to work which stands at 21% and that for cycle users is less pollution which is at 30 %.

    Other reasons for car users to not ride a cycle was faster than cycling at 14%, need to carry things at work at 14% and lastly safer than cycling at 11%. Similarly, the other factors for cycle users to not use a car were no parking problems, no costs, and faster than driving at 15%,13%, and 12 % respectively.

    The pie charts illustrate the reasons for using bicycles and cars as transport mediums to work.

    At first glance, it is discernible that the primary reasons are health and fitness, less pollution, and comfort.

    People who prefer to reach their office by cycle are very much concerned about their health and fitness and environmental pollution. As a result, both of these reasons received the highest vote, 30% each. In the case of driving to work the principal concern is comfort which accounts for 40%, far higher than other reasons.

    The proportions of those saying their transport medium as the fastest mode are quite similar for cycling and driving to work, 12% and 14% respectively.

    Another important reason which influences people to drive to their work is the distance to work and this has been voted for 21%.

      Observations:

      1. Word limit is less than the minimum words required ie. 150 words

      2. In the 2nd paragraph the primary reasons have been mentioned without mentioning the transportation mode which makes it incomplete and unclear.

      3. All throughout ‘vote’ has been mentioned whereas nowhere in the question the word vote is mentioned.

      Feedback:

      The response to the question is not long enough. For Task 1 candidates must write at least 150 words but this answer is below that number. It does not complete the requirements of the task because there is no clear overview. There is a good effort to answer the question and describe the main points in the charts. The statements are generally accurate but not full enough to give all the key points. There is a brief introductory sentence which could be further expanded and the information is not always presented in a clear way. More linking words and phrases could be used in the answer. A limited range of vocabulary has been used to present the information. Language of comparison and contrast has not been used satisfactorily.

    The two pie charts illustrate the proportion of five main reasons for choosing bicycle or car by people when travelling to work. Overall, it can be seen that a majority of people use bicycle for staying fit and healthy and for maintaining ecofriendly atmosphere, while comfort is the main reason for people driving to work.

    To begin, around one-third of people uses bicycle for maintaining health and fitness. Likewise, same proportion of people are citing minimal pollution as the reason for choosing cycling. A fraction of thirteen percent says that cycling is cost effective and less than one fifth finds no parking problems with parking bicycles. In matter of speed, a minority of people find cycling as a faster mode of commute, whereas, less than a fifth finds car to be more faster.

    In contrast, two-fifths of people choose driving to work for comfort. Just over one – fifth of people cites long distance to be the reason for using car. A small minority finds car safer than bicycles and less than a fifth say that they don’t need to carry things to work when they are driving.

    The bar charts illustrates the causes of people’s mode of travel to work either by riding a bicycle or a car in percentage.

    Overall, both enviornmental factors as well as health and fitness equally influenced bicycle riders to a major proportion whereas comfort was the prime reason for others to prefer driving a car over a bicycle.

    Health and fitness and less pollution are the underline factors for 30% of people who select cycling in an equal proportion. Meanwhile ,half of that only given importance to no parking problems. Following that only 15%of people states bicycling as the cheapest way of transport to office.

    On the other hand, driving a car gives comfort to 40 % of people ,while over a fifth of people choose driving because it reduces the distance to work. When less than a fifth decided to drive a car for being faster and comfortable to carry things to work, more than one in ten chooses cycling for being more faster than a car.
