FURTHER COMMENTS


As you can see, I have not had to make many corrections to the graph. It's a very good answer, with all the important featuers explained, some comparisons made, and some good grammatical structures.

The only important thing missing is providing an overview of the main trends at the beginning.

Also, do not use this phrase: "pushing the figure"

Thanks
