The pie chart shows the sales of Coca Cola based on different regions. In general, the total sale in year 2000 was 17.1 billion bottles. The area that consumed most was North America with 30.4 percent of the total volume. Next, Latin America stayed at the second position. Asia and Europe consumed 16.4 percent and 20.5 percent respectively. The lowest consumers were Middle East and Africa areas at 7 percent.
The graph indicates the share price of Coca Cola between 1996 and 2001. The share price rose sharply from 1996 to 1997 and reached nearly 70 percent. In 1996, it slightly reduced to around 55 percent. The figure then went up again and peaked at 80 percent in 1998. There was a gradual drop in the share price after that. It hit the lowest point which was below 50 percent and then rose up again. From the middle of year 2000 to 2001, the share price kept reducing.
You were able to achieve the task by showing the information about sales and share prices for Coca-Cola which is reflected in the pie chart and line graph.
Vocabulary is varied: rise, hit, drop, reduce, consume, sharply, slightly, gradual.
+COHERENCE AND COHESION
There is only one transition word used: next. This is not encouraged and not a good practice because it might reduce the coherence of the whole writing.
The structure can be clearer if there are 2 paragraphs: one for the pie chart and one for the line graph.
+GRAMMATICAL RANGE AND ACCURACY
No grammar errors noted.
