Model Answer

The chart illustrates the data of two student groups that present their diet and their general health.

Overall, it is apparent that eating habits have a direct connection with health. So, food with fat content is the most significant cause of the overweight problem and less class attendance.

To begin with a pie chart, it presents the data of two student groups, group A and group B. in group A, the cereals obtain the highest amount of 35% that is 5% more than the food with a high content of fat. In addition, while the proportion of vegetables in the diet is 22%, out students take less than 10% fruit and fish in their diet. In comparison, in group B, whereas the percentage of cereals s-ay unchanged at 35%, half of the proportion is acquired by food with high-fat content. Interestingly, students take the same rate of fish, fruit, and vegetable in their diet.

On the other hand, the table shows that group A students are healthier than the students in group B due to these food habits. The rate of group B’s overweight students is 20% that is double the of group A. Students who had an illness in the past year in group A is 5%, which is less than the figure in group B with 7%. Moreover, the diet also affects class attendance. Attendance of students in group A reaches 90%, and the percentage in group B is only 75%.
