Sample Answer 1:

The bar graph compares visitors to three museums in London from 2007 to 2012. Generally speaking, National Gallery and the British museums attracted the largest spectators in 2012 though Victoria and Albert Museum was more popular in early years.

As the data suggests, National Gallery received the least visitors (roughly 6 million) in 2007 and its visitors gradually progressed to make it the most visited museum in London in 2012. Approximately 16 million people went to enjoy National Gallery in 2012.

Victoria and Albert Museum had the largest fans in 2007 as it was toured by almost 13 million people. It was the most popular museum among the three both in 2007 and 2008 but sharply lost the battle of visitors’ number. From 2010 to 2012, this museum had been attended by the least number of spectators.

Finally, the British Museum was the second most famous museum in 2007 with its nearly 12 million fans but its visitors’ number declined in subsequent three years.  In 2011, it was the most attended museum in London in regards to the visitor’s number but it became the second most toured museum next year with roughly 14 million visitants.

Model Answer 2: 

The bar graph compares museum visitors to three different types of museums in London from 2007 to 2012. As is presented in the graph, the National Gallery got higher popularity over time and the highest number of people visited those museums in 2012.

According to the diagram, initially in 2007, more than 12 million people visited the British Museum while this number was more than 13 million for Victoria and Albert Museum and only 6.5 million for the National Gallery. The popularity of Victoria and Albert museum remain almost the same next year while it declined for other two museums. The National Gallery Museum got a higher number of visitors each year while the total number of visitors decreased in 2009, 2010 and in 2011.

Finally, in 2012, the National Gallery attracted the largest segment of visitors, amounting over 15 million, while the British Museum was visited by roughly 13 million people. Victoria and Albert Museum was attended by 10 million guests at that time.

In summary, National Gallery gained popularity over the time and more people visited the London Museums in 2007 and in 2012 than they did in the years in between.
