A 类小作文示范题目及范文

1. Bar Chart

a) The chart below gives information about global sales of games software, CDs and DVD or video.


Sample answer:

The chart shows the changes in the sales of video material / DVDs, games software and CDs around the world in billions of dollars over a three-year period. It can be seen that the sales of videos / DVDs and games software have increased, while the sales of CDs have gone down slightly.

Between 2000 and 2003, the sale of videos and DVDs rose by approximately 13 billion dollars. In 2000, just under 20 billion dollars worth of these items were sold, but in 2003, this figure had risen to a little over 30 billion dollars.

The sales of games software also rose during this period, but less sharply. Sales increased from about 13 billion dollars in 2000 to just under 20 billion dollars three years later. By contrast, during the same time period, the sale of CDs fell from 35 billion dollars in 2000 to about 32.5 billion dollars in 2003.


b) The chart below shows the percentage of population in India, China, the USA and Japan in 1950 and 2002.

Sample Answer:

The bar chart compares the changes in the proportion of population in India, China, the USA and Japan in 1950 and 2002. And it also indicates the projections for 2050.

In 1950. China accounted for one fourth of the world population. Although this figure decreased slightly, it still ranked the first in 2002, compared to other three countries. It is estimated that the population in China will continue to drop to 19 per cent in the middle of this century.

India ranked the second in terms of the population in the table, which made up 15 percent in 1950, but since then, there was a dramatic increase, climbing to approximately 19 percent. The percentage is expected to increase slightly to 21 per cent in 2050 and will probably exceed that in China.

When it comes to the population in the USA and Japan, both of which witnessed a decrease from 1950 to  2002. It  is  predicted that in 2050, the percentage will remain the same in the USA, and in Japan, the percentage is likely to keep falling.

Overall, it seems that India will become the country with the largest population although there is still a huge number of people in China..


2. Line Graph

a) Eating sweet foods produces acid in the mouth, which can cause tooth decay. (High acid levels are measured by low pH values). Describe the information below and discuss the implications for dental health.

Sample answer:

Anyone who has visited a dentist has been told that eating excessive amounts of sweets risks harming the teeth. This is because sweets lower pH levels in the mouth to dangerous levels.

When the pH level in the mouth is kept above 5.5, acidity is such that teeth are unlikely to be in danger of decay. Sweet foods, however, cause pH in the mouth to drop for a time, and the longer pH levels remain below 5.5, the greater the opportunity for decay to occur.

By comparing fruit sugar, cane sugar and honey, which are all common ingredients of sweet foods,  we  find  that  cane sugar lowers  pH  levels for  the longest  period, thus producing  the greatest risk of the three. Approximately five minutes after consuming cane sugar, pH levels drop to as little as pH 3.5. They then begin to rise slowly, but do not rise above pH 5.5 until at least 30 minutes have elapsed. By contrast, fruit sugar, which causes the mouth's acidity to fall to just above pH 4, poses a danger for a shorter period: tooth decay is unlikely 20 minutes after consumption. Honey appears an even less risky substance. Though acidity falls to about pH  4.75  within  five  minutes  of  consumption,  it  returns  to  above  pH  5.5  in  under  fifteen minutes.

The implications, then, are that people who insist on eating sweet foods should be aware of the ingredients, and that fruit sugar or honey appear preferable to cane sugar.


b) The graphs below show the numbers of male and female workers in 1975 and 1995 in several employment sectors of the republic of Freedonia. Write a report for a university teacher describing the information shown.

Sample Answer:

The two decades between 1975 and 1995 brought significant changes in the representation of women in Freedonia's work force, according to the graphs.

In 1975, for example, some 300 000 men and 250 000 women worked in the communications sector. Twenty years later, though the number of men remained unchanged, the number of women rose to 550 000.

A similar situation was seen in the wholesale  and  retail trade sector, where  the  number of women rose from about 550 000 in 1975 to almost 800 000 two decades later. The number of men in this sector remained stable over the period, at around 700 000.

Women  also made  gains in  both the  finance/banking industries and in the defence-related public sector. Whereas some 125 000 women worked in  finance  and  banking institutions in 1975, the number increased to 450 000  by  1995. The  number of men grew  only marginally from 425 000 to 480 000 over the same period. In defence, the number of men declined from 225 000 to 200 000, while the number of women rose from 25 000 to over 100 000.

Two  sectors  that  retained  stable  employment  numbers  for  both  men  and  women  were manufacturing, which had about 300 000 women and 650 000 men in both surveyed years, and the public sector (non-defence), which employed 650 000 women and 850 000 men. Thus, women appear to have made gains in the Freedonian work force but not at the expense of men.


3. Pie Chart

a) Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information in the two graphs below.

Sample answer:

The pie charts compare the highest lev el of education achieved by women in Someland across two years, 1945 and 1995. It can be clearly seen that women received a much higher level of education in Someland in 1995 than they did in 1945.

In 1945 only 30% of women completed their secondary education and 1% went on to a first degree. No women had completed post-graduate studies. This situation had changed radically by  1995.  In  1995, 90%  of women  in Someland  had completed secondary  education and  of those, half had graduated from an initial degree and 20% had gone on to postgraduate studies. At the other end of the scale we can see that by 1995 all girls were completing lower secondary, although 10% ended their schooling at this point. This is in stark contrast with 1945 when only 30% of girls completed primary school, 35% had no schooling at all and 35% only completed the third grade.

In conclusion, we can see that in the 50 years from 1945 to 1995 there have been huge positiv e developments to the education levels of women in Someland.


b) Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information below.

Sample Answer:

The pie charts show changes in American spending patterns between 1966 and 1996.

Food  and  cars made up the two biggest  items of  expenditure in both  years.  Together  they comprised over half of household spending. Food accounted for 44% of spending in 1966, but this dropped by two thirds to 14% in 1996. However, the outlay on cars doubled, rising from 23% in 1966 to 45% in 1996.

Other areas changed significantly. Spending on eating out doubled, climbing from 7% to 14%. The proportion of salary spent on computers increased dramatically, up from 1% in 1996 to 10% in 1996.  However,  as computer  expenditure  rose,  the  percentage  of  outlay  on  books plunged from 6% to 1%.

Some areas remained relatively unchanged. Americans spent approximately the same amount of salary on petrol and furniture in both years.

In conclusion, increased amounts spent on cars, computers, and eating out were made up for by drops in expenditure on food and books.


4. Table

a) Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information in the table below.


Sample answer:

The table shows how people in different age groups spend their leisure time in Someland over the course of a year.  It can be  clearly seen  that the  amount of leisure  time available varies considerably across the age groups and that people of different age lev els have very different ways of spending their leisure time.

According to the figures, as people age in Someland their social lives reduce. Teenagers and people in their twenties spend on average 500 hours per year on socialising and 350 hours of that time is with a group of more than 4 people. Although the total hours of socialising in their 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s is fairly constant (between 300-350), socialising with more than 4 people drops dramatically to 50 hours in the 30s and 40s age groups and only 25 from 50 years old. Group and individual exercise follow a similar pattern.

People of all ages spend a good part of their leisure time on entertainment such as TV/video viewing and cinema. In both cases, teenagers and retired people spend around twice as much time as those who are at working age. Home entertainment ranges from just over a thousand hours for teenagers and retired people and an average of 600 hours for everyone else. Cinema accounts for 100 hours of the teenagers and retired people’s leisure time and 25-50 hours for the rest.

In  conclusion  we  can  see  there  is  a  significant  trend  towards  solitary  and  smaller  group activities as people grow older and that teenagers and retired people spend a lot more time on entertainment than those of working age do.

b) The table below shows social and economic indicators for four countries in 1994,according to  United Nations statistics. Describe the information shown below  in your own words. What implications do the indicators have for the countries?


Sample Answer:

A glance at four indicators of economic and social conditions in four countries, Canada, Japan, Peru and Zaire, in 1994 reflects the great differences that exist between wealthier and poorer nations.

The  table  shows that  Japan  and  Canada  had annual  incomes  of  $15 760  and  $11  100  per person,  respectively.  These  figures  were  overwhelmingly  greater  than  the  corresponding figures of $160 in Peru and $130 in Zaire.

Health indicators, too, reflected overall levels of affluence in the four nations. Life expectancy at birth, for example, was higher among the more economically developed countries. Japan reported the highest life expectancy, 78. This was followed by Canada, 76; Peru, 51; and Zaire, 47. This suggests that richer societies are able to put more money into health care than poorer ones.

The  amount  of  calories  consumed  daily  per  person  roughly  followed  the  same  ranking. Canadians each consumed some 3 326 calories per day while the Japanese took 2846 calories. The corresponding figures for Peru and Zaire were 1927 and 1749, respectively.

Literacy rates among adults, too, were higher in wealthier countries, no doubt a reflection of ability to invest  in education. Canada and Japan both  reported literacy  rates  of 99%, while Peru claimed 68%. Zaire, the least economically dev eloped of the four countries, had a literacy rate of 34%.

The  data  appear  to  confirm  the  often  cited  link  between  national  wealth  and  health  and education standards.


5. Map

a) The map below is of the town of Garlsdon. A new supermarket (S) is planned for the town. The map shows two possible sites for the supermarket. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

Sample answer:

The first potential location (S1) is outside the town itself, and is sited just off the main road to the town of Hindon, lying 12 kms to the north-west. This site is in the countryside and so would be able to accommodate a lot of car parking. This would make it accessible to shoppers from both Hindon and Garlsdon who could travel by car. As it is also close to the railway line linking Hindon to Cransdon (25 km to the south-east), a potentially large number of shoppers would also be able to travel by train.

In contrast, the suggested location, S2, is right in the town centre, which would be good for local residents. Theorically the store could be accessed by road or rail from the surrounding towns, including Bransdon, but as the central area is a no-traffic zone, cars would be unable to park and access would be difficult.

Overall, neither site is appropriate for all the towns, but for customers in Cransdon, Hindon and Garlsdon, the out-of-town site (S1) would probably offer more advantages.


b) The diagrams below give information about the Eiffel Tower in Paris and an outline project to extend  it underground. Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information shown.

Sample Answer:

The Eiffel Tower is situated close to the Seine River in Paris. It is a metal structure that is 1,063 feet high and weighs 7,417 tonnes. The tower has been a tourist attraction since 1889, when it was built, and there are 1,665 steps that can be climbed in order to reach the two viewing platforms.

There are now plans to build  below the foundations  of the  tower.  These  plans  include  the development  of  five  underground  levels  that  will  incorporate  the  tower's  ticket  office, shopping facilities, a cinema and museum and two floors of underground parking.

Although details have yet to be finalised, the principle is that the five floors will be connected by two vertical passenger lifts on either side of the tower. In addition, the floor immediately below the tower, which is planned to house the ticket office, will also consist of a large atrium with a glass ceiling so that visitors can look directly up at the tower itself.


6. Process

a) The diagram below shows the typical stages of consumer goods manufacturing, including the process by which information is fed back to earlier stages to enable adjustment. Write a report for a university lecturer describing the process shown.

Sample Answer:

Most consumer goods go through a series of stages before they emerge as finished products ready for sale.

Raw  materials  and  manufactured  components  comprise  the  initial  physical  input  in  the manufacturing process. Once obtained, these are stored for later assembly. But assembly first depends upon the production planning stage, where it is decided how and in what quantities the stored materials will  be processed to  create sufficient quantities of finished goods. The production  planning  stage  itself  follows  the  requirements  of  the  goods'  design  stage  that proceeds from extensive research. After assembly, the products are inspected and tested to maintain  quality  control. Those  units  that  pass  the  inspection  and  testing  stages  are  then packaged, despatched and offered for sale in retail outlets. The level of sales, which is the end point of the manufacturing process, helps determine production planning.

A product's design is not only the result of product research, but is also influenced by testing and market research. If the testing stage (after assembly and inspection) reveals unacceptable problems in the  finished  product,  then adjustments will have to be made to the  product's design. Similarly, market research, which examines the extent and nature of the demand for products, has the role of guiding product design to suit consumer demands which may change with  time.  Market  research,  while  influenced by  product sales,  also  serves  to  foster  future sales by dev ising suitable advertising for the goods.

Thus the reality of  consumer goods manufacturing goes well beyond a simple linear production process.


b) The table below shows the sales at a small restaurant in a downtown business district. Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

Sample Answer:

Gaining  work experience prior  to graduation helps university students to succeed in getting their first job. For this reason, some universities insist that all students must complete a Work Experience  Requirement.  Completing  the  following  six  stages  results  in  the  requirements’ fulfillment.

The  process  begins  with  the  Application  stage.  A  student  reviews  an  approved  list  of workplaces  and  submits  applications  to  places  where  he  would  like  to  work.  Next  is  the Approval stage. When a student receives an acceptance letter, he gives it to the professor for approval. The  third  stage,  Schedule,  requires  a  student  to  arrange  his  work  schedule.  The student  should work  at least  10  hours/week over 20  weeks. Reports are next. The student must complete a Weekly Report Form and turn it in to the professor every Friday.

The fifth stage, Evaluation, takes place during the final work week. A student participates in an evaluation  meeting  with his work supervisor,  who  submits an  Evaluation Form.  The  last stage requires that a student submit a Final Report before the last week of spring semester.

By following these stages and subsequently submitting the final report, the student receives credit from the university.


7. Combination

The chart and graph below give information about sales and share prices for Coca-Cola. Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information shown below.

Sample Answer:

The pie chart shows the worldwide distribution of sales of Coca-Cola in the year 2000 and the graph shows the change in share prices between 1996 and 2001.

In  the  year  2000,  Coca-Cola  sold  a  total  of  17.1  billion  cases  of  their  fizzy  drink  product worldwide. The largest consumer was North America, where 30.4 per cent of the total volume was purchased. The second largest consumer was Latin America. Europe and Asia purchased 20.5  and  16.4  per  cent of the  total  volume  respectively, while  Africa and  the  Middle  East remained fairly small consumers at 7 per cent of the total volume of sales.

Since  1996, share prices for  Coca-Cola  have fluctuated.  In that year, shares were  valued  at approximately  $35.  Between  1996  and  1997,  however,  prices  rose  significantly  to $70  per share. They dipped a little in mid-1997 and then peaked at $80 per share in mid-98. From then until 2000 their value fell consistently but there was a slight rise in mid-2000.
