A breakdown of the annual growth of GDP for three countries is presented in the bar chart from 2007 to 2010.

In 2007, the proportion of Tunisia showed by far the most significant growth in GDP at over 6%, while Ecuador experienced a half as much. Moreover, a very small number was revealed in Japan's development at 2%. By 2010, Japan's growth had witnessed a considerable increase at 6.5%, but the percentage of Tunisia had fallen back to virtually the 2007 Ecuador's figure by 2010. Meanwhile, there was a threefold decrease of Japan's rate in Ecuador GDP.

Between 2008 and 2009, there was a parallel trend in Tunisia and Ecuador. Those showed a fall in the proportion. The former went down steadily by around 1%, while the latter showed a significant decrease hitting a low approximately at 1%. Yet, a slight increase was seen in Japan's GDP from at over 4% to 5%.

By and large, initially GDP in Tunisia experienced the highest percentage among others. Eventually, its proportion always revealed a gradual fall over the period in question.

Masdar, I am sure that you have been reminded in your previous practice tests about the mandatory format for the paragraphs in this type of essay. You cannot have less than 3 sentences for any of the paragraphs. You are expected to present the complete summary within 3-5 sentences, which comprise a solid paragraph. Your introduction and conclusion are both wanting int hat aspect and will adversely affect the final grade that you receive.

It is too bad that you are unable to properly format your paper. You only needed to add a few sentences from the second paragraph to the first paragraph in order to create a more solid opening statement. The same procedure could have been used to summarize the content of your conclusion as well.

The overall essay was highly informative and well developed in terms of content. The reporting style is acceptable and you would definitely get good marks for the way you accurately presented the information. The only aspect that would really draw back the paper is the format as even your use of the English language has shown tremendous improvement.
