The line graph below shows changes in the amount and type of fast food consumed by Australian teenagers from 1975 to 2000.
Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.
The line graph compares the fast food consumption of teenagers in Australia between 1975 and 2000, a period of 25 years. Overall, the consumption of fish and chips declined over the period, whereas the amount of pizza and hamburgers that were eaten increased.
In 1975, the most popular fast food with Australian teenagers was fish and chips, being eaten 100 times a year. This was far higher than Pizza and hamburgers, which were consumed approximately 5 times a year. However, apart from a brief rise again from 1980 to 1985, the consumption of fish and chips gradually declined over the 25 year timescale to finish at just under 40.
In sharp contrast to this, teenagers ate the other two fast foods at much higher levels. Pizza consumption increased gradually until it overtook the consumption of fish and chips in 1990. It then levelled off from 1995 to 2000. The biggest rise was seen in hamburgers as the occasions they were eaten increased sharply throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s, exceeding that of fish and chips in 1985. It finished at the same level that fish and chips began, with consumption at 100 times a year.
Write a letter to a manufacturer to ask them to arrange production of a new item for you. Please say
?What item do you need
?Why do you need it
To the engineering team at Quanta Manufacturing,
I am writing to you to request the production of a new bicycle chain that fits our Go Cycle model. Allow me to go into a bit of detail regarding the situation on our side.
Basically, we here are Sports World have received numerous customer complaints that the chains on our Go Cycles snap too quickly. As you can imagine, this has done little to support our brand positioning as a supplier of quality mountaineering goods.
After testing the chains, we realized that their defectiveness is due to their being made of subpar steel. Thus from this day forward, we would like you to manufacture Go Cycle chains using the highest grade of steel available to you. We realize this will affect the price and accept any new quotation you provide within reason. Thank you for your understanding.
Your professional partner,
Head of Purchasing
You are preparing an event in the countryside. Write a letter to your friend and ask for help with the arrangements. In your letter include:
– what the event is
– why the event is being held
– what arrangements have already been made
– how your friend can help
I hope you and your wife have been enjoying you summer holiday. My wife and I have started pulling together plans for this year’s company barbecue. I am writing to share some details regarding the event and ask whether you would be able to help with a few of the remaining tasks.
As you know, the barbecue has become a highly anticipated annual tradition for everyone at our company. This year, the meet up is going to be held in Paxton Park, behind the church on Gladsdale Avenue and Riverside Street. My wife has reserved a rented canopy in case of rain and we are planning on getting the Texan restaurant Bubba’s to cater food and drinks. However, we feel a little strapped for time considering we still have a handful of errands to finish before the big day.
Thus, I was hoping you could find time to complete and distribute the invitations. I think any basic invitation template on your computer should suit. I can email you the guest list this evening. Please let me know as soon as you can whether this would be possible or not.
