The graph below shows the amount in grams of potatoes, pasta and rice eaten in a European country between 1976 and 2006.

Model Answer:

The graph chart shows the consumption quantity of potatoes, pasta and rice in a European state during the period of 30 years from 1976 to 2006. Overall, it is seen that the proportion of potatoes in a weekly diet has greatly reduced in the span of 30 years whereas intake of pasta has substantially increased during the same time period.

In 1976, the consumption of potatoes stood at the highest among the three food items. More than 400 grams of potatoes were consumed by a person in a week. Pasta was the least eaten product in that year (About 270 grams per person per week).
Initially until around 1986, potatoes were the most sought after food products. However, this trend got reversed and people started eating less amounts of potatoes thereafter. Especially after 1991, there was a steep decline of quantity of potatoes forming part of diet and in 2006; it was at the bottom position (little more than 100 grams per person per week).

In contrast to this trend, people started consuming more quantity of pasta and its quantity on weekly meals continued to increase until 1996 (reaching 500 grams per human per week) and thereafter, it has stabilised.

It can also be seen that the consumption of rice was declining until 2000 and thereafter it slightly peaked up. However, its consumption in 2006 (around 200 grams per person per week) was much less than in 1976 (little more than 300 grams per person per week).
