Questions: Do I need to use past tense in all sentences?

Khoa, let me try and explain the formatting of the Task 1 essay to you. I feel that I have to do this because you have a very big problem when it comes to representing the contents of the illustrations you are provided for analysis.

Paragraph 1:
1. Type of illustration
2. Objective of the illustration
3. Measurement type including the factors for measurement (age, gender, classification, etc.)
4. Discussion instruction
5. Trending discussion (optional)

Paragraph 2 - Discussion of general information
Paragraph 3 - Comparisons, similarities, and other information
Paragraph 4 - Optional, any other information required.

Unless otherwise specified, you must always use past tense in the narration of the information. You may however, find yourself using all 2 tenses in the presentation depending upon the information that is presented in the diagram / illustration.

Based upon the above divisions, you should recognize the immediate problem points in your essay. Your biggest mistake is that you limit the use of the actual data from the essay in your presentation. Whenever provided, present the actual hours used by each classification. More importantly, you need to mention the classifications in the summary overview because that is required information for the reader. If you use the format I provided you with above in every essay, you should be able to keep track of the important discussion points and cover all of the required information for the reader.
Well. I think you should change the way you describe the information because it looks too simple.You can also change the name of the factors in the bar chart in order to avoid the repetition.And the first sentence in the third paragraph, in my opinion, can be misunderstood because it may be thought that the free time hours both genders consumed were equal.
