    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.

      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.

Meanwhile, only half of them have given importance to no parking problem, whereas the least amount of workforce considers its speed. Following that 13% consider cycling as the cheapest mode of transport.

    Overall, the largest proportion of people prefer travelling by car because of Comfort at 40% people following this reason while quite a few people follow bicycle is due to the reason of health & fitness as 30% of people are health conscious, who also believe in pollution free environment.

    However, another major reason for choosing cycling over car, it won’t cause any parking problems by 15% of people but cycling can’t resolve all the issues thus, there’s 14% of people think driving through car only, we can carry needy things to work and car is the safest medium for 11% of people. For 21% of people believe through car only distance to work can be covered in short span, on top of that journey is another key factor, as 14% of people thinks faster journey is important factor compared to 12% of cyclists who finds their bicycle as quick mode of driving.

    The pie chart depicts the preferences of people on different modes of transportation for reaching their workplace and the reason behind the same. The reasons are discussed by allocating different percentages taking the consideration of cost, distance, wellness, pollution, safety and many other factors.

    The first figures illustrates the reason for cycling to workplace , what stands out from the pie chart is equal proportion of the population are much concerned about the hazardous environment caused by the pollution , to take good care of their health and for their well being they have opted to cycle to their work place and that rounds up to more than half a percentage of the population. Whereas 15 percentage of the population prefer to cycle to avoid parking congestion in the workplace. A very few people less than population discussed above feels its less expensive since no fuels are used as in cars or bikes and also, they feel they can reach work much faster by cycling than by driving.

    The second chart portrays the population who reply on driving to their work, what we infer from the chart is most of the people consider it’ comfortable to drive and reach work. About 21 percent stick to driving since they work far away from their workplace which they couldn’t reach by cycling. Equal number of people and about 14 percent considered the time and baggage they carry, and 11 percent thinks it’s safer than cycling.

    To conclude surplus amount of people go with driving rather than cycling to connect their workplace for the various reasons discussed above.

    The above pie chart depicts the reasons in percentage, why people travel to work by bicycle or by car. Various reasons were stated in response to use of bicycle or car.

    Overall, both modes of transport, i.e., car and bicycle have equal share of advantages. The driver’s requirements decide the ideal mode of transport.

    The interpretation of the diagram shows car is used for transportation when comfort and carrying things to office is the priority, it also helps when the workplace is far and can run faster than bicycle safely.

    Cycling was opted by people to tackle problems like pollution and the trouble of parking, also it saves fuel expenses and contributes to the improvement of physical fitness. Workers also claim that cycling is faster than driving to work.

    The above given modes of transportation are effective and useful for the workers, both are claimed to be faster and helpful in reaching the workplace.
