Extra Practice Question 1

Question: Look at the graph below. In 25 seconds, please speak into the microphone and describe in detail what the graphs are showing. You will have 40 seconds to give your response.
 
Answer: This line graph shows the projected births in Australia from 2011 to 2101. The highest numbers of projected births are in 2101 whereas the lowest are in 2011. Projections for Series C remain relatively steady throughout the period while Series B shows double the number of births by 2101. Series A has the highest increase, with a jump of over four hundred thousand births per year. It could be predicted that birth rates will continue to climb after 2101, though the increase for Series C is likely to be quite modest.

Extra Practice Question 2

Question: Look at the graphs below. In 25 seconds, please speak into the microphone and describe in detail what the graphs are showing. You will have 40 seconds to give your response.
 
Answer: The bar chart shows visitor numbers to “The Surrealists” exhibition at the Palmerston Centennial Gallery in April, 2019 with the pie graph depicting the age of the visitors to the exhibition.

The busiest day was the first of April with more than 18 000 visitors. In contrast, fewer than a thousand people attended on the 25th. Perhaps unsurprisingly, weekends were significantly more popular than weekdays. More than a quarter of the visitors were aged between 55 and 65 while only about ten percent of visitors were under 18.

In conclusion, “The Surrealists” exhibition was well-patronised throughout the month of April by a largely mature audience.
