UK marriages, 1951 – 2009

1.

Model Answer

The line graph shows information about the number of all marriages, first wedding together with a number of remarriages that took place in the UK over the period of 1951 to 2009.Initially, a gradual increase could be very well observed in all marriages and first weddings followed by a fall in the later period. However, remarriages plummeted to a certain period with a steady increase in subsequent years.
In the year 1951, in spite of sharp fluctuations, the number of all weddings and first marriages were approximately 400,000 which soared to a new peak in the year 1971 reaching approximately 500,000 but these figures fell dramatically in 1973 and number of marriages dipped several times before sinking to a new low at the end of 2009.
The number of second marriages in 1951 were recorded just under 100,000.After 1971, a steady increase could be analyzed in number of remarriages reaching more than 100,000 but it fell below 100,000 in 2009.

The map below is of the town of Garlsdon. A new supermarket (S) is planned for the town. The map shows two possible sites for the supermarket.

Describe image model answer

The map outlines two possible locations of a newly planned supermarket for Garlsdon, a town with a population of 65,000 people. As can be seen clearly, the site one is outside of the town, while the proposed site two is located in the middle of the town centre.

The site one is located in the northwest outside of the town, on the way to Hindon, a town with 10,000 population and 12 km from Garlsdon. It is between main roads and railway. In contrast, the site two is inside the town centre of Garlsdon, which is designated as no traffic zone, however, its distance to the railway is much closer than that of site one. There are three main roads, which connect to surrounding towns, Hindon, Bransdon, and Cransdon, with the population of 10,000, 15,000 and 29,000, respectively. However, the distance to the access of the main road is relatively far in comparing to that of site one.
