Hellloooo there, let me help you with some feedback. Let's start with the opening paragraph. Here I see that you have no problem dealing with the paraphrased question. You did it well, but a phrase you wrote sounds unclear. Here is: how much euro to be sold. Are you sure of this talking about euro being sold? I dont think so. If you see the whole data, then they talk about the sales of two commodities in different countries.

if you see the overall band descriptor writing task 1, then you are suggested to introduce the overview, showing the main trend and differences of the data. The overview can be put at first or last paragraph. For this essay, I dont see any of them. Let me give you a try: Overall, the UK and Switzerland broke the record to sell more Coffee and Bananas. Although almost sales of two commodities rose, there were no significant improvements on commodities sold.

Hope this helps,
