The line graph presents data on vehicle theft cases in Great Britain, Sweden, France and Canada from 1990 to 1999. As is obvious, car thefts in Great Britain were higher than that of other countries while this rate noticeably increased in Sweden.

According to the diagram, roughly 17 transportations in every thousand were stolen in the Great Britain in 1990 while this rate was between 6 to 8 per thousand in France, Canada and Sweden. Automobile embezzlement in Great Britain steadily climbed till 1993 at which point 2% cars were reported abducted. With some minor fluctuations, car lifting rates in France and Canada remained almost constant throughout the years. In contrast, carrier stealing rate in Sweden kept on soaring and in 1995 this proportion reached as high as 10 in every thousand vehicles. Motor vehicle theft in Great Britain sharply declined in 1994 but grew again till 1997 to strike 2% again. Afterwards, car theft incidents in Great Britain firmly declined between 1997 and 1999 when it actually increased in Sweden. Finally, in 1999, almost 1.5% automobiles in Great Britain and Sweden were reported stolen while it was almost one-third of that in France and Canada.

Sample Anser 2

The line graph displays data on the vehicle thefts in 4 countries (Great Britain, Sweden, France and Canada) between 1990 and 1999.

Overall, the most noticeable feature of the diagram is that vehicle thefts cases in Great Britain was higher than the other three countries in the given period.

In detail, first of all, approximately 17 out of a thousand vehicles were stolen in Great Britain in the year 1990. Despite some fluctuations throughout 10 years, the number was almost the same in the end. As obvious, vehicle thefts in the country reached the peak in both 1993 and 1997 (about 20 stolen cars per thousand).

However, it was Sweden where the biggest change took place. An enormous increase can easily be seen, as the figure in 1999 (14 vehicle thefts per thousand) doubled in just ten years.

In sharp contrast with the two mentioned countries, automobile thefts in Canada and France were relatively stable between 1990 and 1999. In that period, the number remained between 5 to 7 stolen cars per thousand. In each year, except for 1990, Canada had a slightly smaller or equal figure of vehicle thefts in comparison with France.

And finally, another look at the diagram suggests that in 1994, vehicle thefts in four countries combined were the lowest. Additionally, still in the year 1994, Great Britain and Canada also had the lowest figure, which was about 16 and 5 per thousand, respectively.
