 “How do I answer an IELTS writing task 1?” is a common question that said by the IELTS participants. Just for an information, that everyone will find some examples of all different types of task that include line graphs, pie charts, tables, processes, diagrams, and also maps. First,  you shall get an overview the way to answer the task. There are some ways to do that like answering a question would depends on the type of graph and diagram with a certain pattern that had to be followed that shows at the graph below:

There is a graph that shows the Fast Food Consumption by Australian Teenagers, the first thing that you have to remember that you have to know the graph well, then give an overview, and for the last but not least you have to give the detail of one. Knowing the graph well means that you should find a state relates to the graph by doing paraphrase of the graph’s title for an example:

The line graphs illustrates the nominal of the fast food consumed by the Australian Teenagers between 1975 till 2000 during 25 years.

After that, you should give an overview by giving main trend as a state of the graph for the example:

Mostly, the fish and chips consumption declined over the period, whereas the amount of pizza and hamburgers that were eaten increased.

The state above means that the condition happened over the period. An overview may be placed as the conclusion but sometime you could see it at the introduction. The last one, you should give more specific detail in the body of paragraphs by grouping data with the same patterns then finding the similarities and differences by looking at the graph like this example:

The most popular fast food for Australian teenagers in 1975 were fish and chips. They could ate them till 100 times a year. This fact is greater than pizza and hamburgers consuming (5 times in a year). However, apart from a brief rise again during 1980 till 1985, showed the consumption of fish and chips declined over 25 year timescale to finish at just under 40 times per year.

From the paragraph above, we can see that the main topic is about fish and chips. Then we have to make a comparison between the first and the last paragraph (shown below):

On the other hand, teenagers ate another two fast foods pizza and hamburgers in much higher levels. The frequency of consuming pizza was increase highly defeated the fish and chips consumption in 1990 then over reached since 1995 until 2000. The crazy fact seemed when the consumption of hamburgers increase sharply during 1970’s until 1980’s over the fish and chips ones in 1985. It finished at the same rank with the beginning of fish and chips that consumed 100 times a year.

From this paragraph, we can find that the graph of Consumption of Fast Food by Australian Teenagers illustrate the increasing of consuming fast food during 25 years then declined over that period. Fish and chips became the most popular fast food in 1975 followed by pizza and hamburgers replace the fast food before.
