You should write at least 150 words.
Sample Answer 1:
The figures illustrate the result of an opinion survey about the reason why adult people choose to study and how tuition costs should be funded. It is clear that based on the survey result, the two main reasons why adults have continued their study are due to they are interested in subjects and to obtain the degree. It is also noticed that the survey also shows that most of the education cost should be funded by individuals themselves.
It can be seen that the two main purposes why adult continue their study are because they interested with the program and to obtain the qualification, as these two reasons result reached 40% and 38% respectively. Meanwhile, the percentages of the survey for reasons of helpful for their current job, improving prospect and promotion, and that they like studying were in the range between 22% and 20%. As for figures of those who study for the purpose of changing jobs and to meet new people, they were below 15% each.
As for the survey result of the education cost, it is obvious that 40% of the cost should become the burden of the respective person themselves. Then 35% should be provided by the employer and 25% from the taxpayer.

Sample Answer 2:
The figures in the chart show what motivates adults to study and the ratio of funding for the same. Overall, it is apparent that most students are lured to study due to their love for the subjects and due to this, the largest portion of study cost must be borne by the individual himself, in their opinion.
The first chart intends to show that most students are keen to study due to their interest in a subject and to gain higher qualifications. The latter accounts for 38%; there being only 2% difference with the former at 40%. Out of 100, 22 students opine that studying would support their incumbent job. For those students who profess that study would help them in getting a promotion and that it is an interesting activity, an equal result is gathered (20%). A meagre number of students, 12% and 9%, feel that study would assist them to get a new job and that it will build acquaintances with new people.
From the second chart, it is seen that the individual should be the highest cost bearer for his own study (40%). Next, comes the employer at 35% and after that the taxpayer with the least burden (25%) of the cost.
