Task 1 (Graph) - The graph below shows the number of cars produced in three countries in 2003, 2006 and 2009. Summarize the information below in your own words.
The table given below shows the changes in production rate of cars in Argentina, Australia and Thailand during 2003, 2006 and 2009.
In general, the number of cars produced in Argentina and Thailand showed an increasing trend, while that of Australia declined. A significant change was evident in the car production rate in Argentina.
In 2003, the number of cars manufactured in Argentina was much lower than the other countries with a production rate of 166,000 cars. This rate then nearly trebled and reached 420,000 in 2006 following which a moderate increase can be seen in the period 2009 to 510,000 cars. Car production rate in Thailand also showed an incline from 787,000 cars in 2003 to 999,879 cars in 2009 and accounted for the largest production of cars among the given countries by the end of the period after reaching a peak at 1,180,000 in 2006.
In contrast, Australia’s car production figures nearly halved by 2009 wherein the numbers dropped steadily from 538,000 cars in 2003 to 225,000 cars in the last year and registered the lowest car production rate.
