Model Answer 1:
The line graph shows monthly gold sales amount in Dubai throughout the year 2012. The sales amount is given in million Dirhams for every month in 2012. A glance at the diagram reveals that in March the sale amount was highest and average monthly sale of gold was between 100 and 200 million Dirhams.
According to the line graph, total sales of gold was 200 million Dirhams in January 2002 in Dubai and this amount rapidly increased in the next two months. In March, the sales amounted 350 million Dirhams, the highest in the year but afterwards, the sales amount steadily declined till July when the gold sale was recorded at just over 110 million Dirhams. August’s gold sale went abruptly higher, over 200 million but it then dropped suddenly to 110 million again. Sales of gold climbed in the next month, October but remained almost stable for the rest of the year at around 170-180 million Dirhams. At the end of the year, Dubai gold sale was recorded at approximately 185 million Dirhams, almost same as it was at the beginning of the year.
Sample Answer 2:
The given line graph shows data on Gold sales in Dubai from January to December of the year 2002. As is presented in the illustration, the highest amounts of sales were done in March and lowest sales were in July and September.
As is presented in the line graph, initially in January 2002, two hundred millions of Dirham Gold was sold in January and this amount kept increasing for the next two month and in March it reached to 350 million which is the largest amount throughout the whole year. After that, the sales volume keeps declining steadily and reached to 110 million in July. With some fluctuations, the sale amount reached to 200 million in August and finally, in December, it totalled about 200 million.
In summary, Mars was the best month for Dubai Gold sales in the year 2002 and throughout the year the sale volume fluctuated keeping an approximate average of 180 million of Dirham per month.
