This is the introduction of your essay and it needs to be short and direct. Paraphrasing the prompt is a really good way to do that. You don't need to list every single thing mentioned in the chart.The bar chart presents data concerning the expenditure on six consumer goods in four countries, namely Britain, France, Germany and Italy.
The numbers along the horizontal axis represent thousands of pounds sterling that are spent on the goods, while the different goods are on the vertical axis.
You are writing this to a university lecturer so this is unncessary. That's what readers have already known.
As the chart has yet to be attached, I cannot give you any feedback on the contents of your body paragraphs. However, as you are to write a report, using numbers to clarify the differences among these countries will make your essay more interesting, instead of using words like "highest" or "lowest" only.
Hope it helps!
