Hi guys, I need your help with my Task 1. Thank you very much.

The line graph compares four distinct fields from which the amount of acid rain pounding out in England from 1990 to 2007.

Overall, it seems that most of acid rain emissions in these sectors diminished over this period, with a noticeable exception of the fluctuation in the data of transport and communication.

In terms of clear downturns, although representing the highest of about 3.3 million tones in 1991,the figures for electricity, gas and water supply slumped to a mere 0.5 million tones 16 year later. Besides, there was a slight decrease in the amount of acid rain regarding other industries, which surpassed 1.7 million tones of mentioned energy productions in 1996 in order to account for 1.2 million tones in the end of the period.

Apart from this, making up the lowest at 0.7 million tones in the beginning, domestic sector experienced a continuing steady downward trend to just 0.3 million tones, while negligibly having higher by around 0.1 million tones, the data of transportation and communication reached 0.8 million tones, being considered as the runner-up in 2007.

Hi Tam, let's check out my sample.

The line graph compares how many million tonnes of acid raid exposed by 4 different industries in England from 1991 to 2007.

Overall, it seems that most of acid rain emissions in these sectors diminished over this period, with a noticeable exception of the stability in the data of transport and communication.

In 1991, utilities produced the largest amount of acid rain, standing at around 3.4 million tonnes, which was dramatically higher than that of the remaining. Other industries ranked second with over 2 million tonnes in its acid rain output. The figures for the remaining sectors were just only approximately 600.000 tonnes.

However, electricity, gas and water supply reduced their acid rain emission significantly to only 0.5 million tonnes during the period shown. Although other sectors tried to cut their acid rain disposal level to only 1.2 million tonnes, its figure was the highest in 2007. After a slight growth to 1 million tonnes of acid rain emissions, transport and communication sector ended up at around 700.000 tonnes. In terms of household category, it emitted the lowest amount of acid rain over the period, continuing decline gradually at only 200,000 tonnes in the final year.
