Test 1. The chart shows information about the main sources of funding for scientific research and development (R & D) in the UK. The proportion of national income spent on R&D by country is shown in the table.

Between 1998 and 2001, the amount of funding allocated from each source rose very slightly. Approximately half of all investment throughout the period came from business, while the government consistently contributed around seventeen per cent. It is also noticeable that in 1998 and 1999 overseas spending on R&D on the UK was comparable to the government’s, at around seventeen per cent. Bur for the last two years it overtook government spending in the area.

As regards the proportion of national income allocated to R&D, the highest percentage (2.9 per cent) was spent by Japan, followed closely by the USA (2.5 per cent) By contrast, Italy contributed the smallest amount of national income to R&D, only 1.1 per cent, significantly below the EU average of 1.81 per cent.

It is interesting to note that although the UK’s spending on R&D was above the EU average in 1999, it is considerably behind other close trading partners France and Germany.

Test 2. The table compares the opinions of male and female club members about the services provided by a city sports club.

We can see from the responses that the male members are generally happy or satisfied with the range of activities at the club, with only 5% dissatisfied. In contrast, however, only about two-thirds of female members were positive about the activity range and almost a third were dissatisfied.

The genders were more in agreement about the club facilities. Only 14% of women and 10 % of men were unhappy with these, and the majority (64% and 63% respectively) were very positive.

Finally, the female respondents were much happier with the club opening hours than their male counterparts. Almost three-quarters of them were very satisfied with these and only 3% were unhappy, whereas nearly 40% of the men expressed their dissatisfaction.

Overall, the table indicates that female members are most unhappy with the range of activities, while male members feel that opening hours are the least satisfactory aspect of the club. (171 words)

Task 4. trends. cinema-attendance

The graph compares level of cinema-going of four age groups in Australia from 1990 to the present and makes predictions until 2010.

The popularity of cinema-going has grown since 1990 for all age groups, with the increase ranging from just over 5 % for 14-24 year olds (90% to projected 96%) to around 25 % for the 35-29 year olds (60 % to over 85%). Going to the cinema has proved most popular with 14-24 year olds and least popular with the 50+ age-group, although the 40 % in 1990 is expected to have risen to almost 60% by 2010.

The only age group which is expected to record a decline in cinema attendance is the 25-34 year olds, with numbers predicted to fall by just over 5% from their peak of 80% in the middle of the period.

Overall, despite fluctuations, there has been a steady upward tend in cinema-going in Australia, although the recent decline in the 25-35 year old age group is expected to continue.

Test 1
The graph shows how many complaints were made about city noise in Newtown between 1980 and 1996.

Notably, the number of complaints about traffic noise, factory noise and domestic noise increased throughout the given period. The number of traffic noise complaints doubled from 300 in 1980 to 600 in 1996. Meanwhile, complaints about factory noise increased by about 50 % from 400 in 1980 to nearly 650 in 1996. Finally, the number of complaints about factories grew by approximately 150 complaints (from 400 to about 700).

The greatest cause of concern among the local people in Newtown was domestic noise, which by 1996 had soared to just over 1200 complaints from the initial mark of 500 complaints.

It is worth noting that during the 1980-1996 the local concern about road works showed a downward trend, with the number of complaints falling dramatically from just over 600 in 1980 to about 100 in 1996.

Overall, despite the sharp decrease in number of complaints about road works, the city of Newtown remained quite a noisy place with the number of other types of complaints on the increase.

The diagram illustrates how to use water in order to generate electricity.

The diagram shows that the process of producing electricity involves natural processes such as water evaporation and cloud formation as well as special human-built equipment.

First of all, water evaporates from the sea, and as a result clouds are formed. When it rains, the water is collected in a purpose built reservoir. From there the water goes to turbine through a valve which could be opened or closed whenever necessary. This movement of water forces a turbine to rotate and generate electricity. Finally, the electricity is transferred to a transformer station via high voltage cables. The water which is involved in the process is used repeatedly. In other words, from the turbine it goes to a puma and then it returns to the reservoir. The transformer station in turn supplies city buildings such as schools and hospitals with electricity.

Overall, the illustration shows that there are 3 main steps in order to generate electricity: water collection, turbine rotation and electricity accumulation in the transformer station.

The maps illustrate how the town of Templeton was redeveloped from 1990 to 2005

On the west bank of the river that divides the city into two parts, high-rise buildings were constructed replacing the small houses and some of the trees. Also a supermarket was erected in that area. A new stretch of a railway line was built along the sea coast and it ran from west to east joining the two parts of the city.

On the east bank of the river, it is worth mentioning that the airport as well as a few more houses around the hospital were built. Other remarkable developments involved the construction of a factory and the south-east of the city. Meanwhile all the trees in that corner that existed previously in 1990 were cut down and the houses were demolished. However, the hospital, the school and the parking were kept intact.

It is clear that the city undergone many changes throughout the given period.
