Model Answer :

The given column graph elucidates the outcome of a survey as to the best solution of global warming among the people of four European countries, which are Portugal, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands. It is clear from the graph that lifestyle changes were rated as the best solution by the maximum youth of all the countries.

50% of the young Portuguese people rated lifestyle changes as the best solution for global warming. Government regulations and environmental issues were considered the best ways to solve global warming by 20% and 17% respectively. The maximum Spanish young generation also was of the view that lifestyle changes were the most effective solution, but their percentage was lesser than that of the Portuguese in this respect. 17% and 20% of young people in Spain rated government issues and environmental factors as the best solution. The overall trend of the Spanish, the Italian and the Dutch youth was the same for all the factors with minor differences in percentage.

Overall, only a small minority of the youth of all the countries opined that none of these factors could help reduce global warming.
