I quite agree with eddies :)

First, the attractive noticeable trends is seen in biking and gaming activities as twin trends, eighty per cent Australian boys like biking and gaming while the Australian counterpart doing these activities by 50 per cent.

"attractive noticeable trends" - the word "attractive" does not provide any meaningful contribution to the presentation of this idea. In fact it destroys the flow of your sentence. Avoid redundant words in sentences.

Both boys and girls have Biking and gaming show similar trends, however, the boys lead girls in their engagement in these leisure activities.
