Hello Amal, I have read your review in this writing. I found many improvements you need. Please, you meet my notes and deal with them.

1. Be careful of picking a conjunction up. I think you make a mistake in delivering the conjunction at the first sentence. It's better you use the connector conjunction "and". Please, you double check your sentence to make sure that you write is what you mind. That really broke your sentence.

2. I suggest you merge between the first and second paragraph to meet the requirement in writing a good paragraph. Keep in your mind that the good paragraph has at least three sentences. Following this, your overview is less strong to describe attractive trends in the bar chart.

3. Avoid using a contraction (it's) in the formal writing. That is a minor error, but if you do more, it can reduce your score.

4. Don't use the word "for example" because it seemed that you will give perception about the bar chart although it is prohibited in the writing task 1.

5. Believe me that you cannot get the high score in this moment because you forgot one of the essential prompts. You are supposed to present comparisons in this writing. I only wanna remind that your job in the writing task 1 is to compare figures, not to describe separately. Make sure that your writing has had that sense.

Hopefully, those can help you for finalizing this writing.
