Some comments on your answer.

For your first paragraph, remember that the graph is showing results that extend until 2040. This means that part of the graph is actually showing a projection into the future. You should try to include this in your description.

In your second paragraph you state "Generally, there is an increase for all three graphs. Itwuld be clearer to say that there is an increase for all three countries - there is only one graph.

In your third paragraph, there is probably no need to talk about the "5 year terms" as this is just a style used when graphs cover a long period of time. So you could say "In 1940 the USA had the highest proportion of citizens over 65, with 8%". Instead of saying "the middle term" you might say "In the years between 2020 and 2025..."

In your fourth paragraph you state that "Overall, Each country has inclination trend-line". A clearer and simpler way to express this is to say "Overall, each country has shown an increasing trend..."

I hope this helps. I have just launched a new website at www.theieltsguy.com that you might like to check.
