Model Answer :
The given bar graph compares the access to medical, educational and postal services by the city and countryside people in a specific region in the United Kingdom. Overall, it can be seen that almost all urban people are within the fifteen-minute drive to all these mentioned services.
Cent-percent urban and rural people have access to medical facilities. They are all within fifteen minutes drive to a doctor. Similarly, secondary school can be reached within 15 minutes by all residents of villages and cities. All city people have a post office in their propinquity. However, five per cent of villagers have to drive more than fifteen minutes to avail postal services. The biggest discrepancy lies in primary school facilities. Only sixty-five percent of villagers have a primary school within a quarter of an hour drive, whereas the remaining, approximately one-third inhabitants of the countryside have to drive their children to far-off schools.
Overall, the rural and urban communities have similar access to medical, postal and secondary school facilities but only about a third of villagers do not live close to a primary school.
