I guess you linked the wrong image so I cannot give any specific suggestions regarding your essy. However, it seems like you wrote too much, which was not encouraged as you will running out of time for task 2.

Also, from the prompt it seems like two different time is compared in the chart, so I supposed to see words like 'increased' ' decreaded' in your body paragraph, which indicates the changes during the time.
