Q14. Task 1 - Graph (Solved) (Line graph)

The polyline graph portrays the changes in the amount of fast food consumed in the UK between 1970 and 1990. The data is calibrated in grams.

From an overall perspective, it is apparent that in 1970, the most popular fast food was fish and chips. Over 300g were consumed per week. By 1990, however, the consumption experienced a 50% drop. Consumption of other fast foods such as pizza and hamburgers increased, however. The amount of pizza eaten shot up from about 20g a week to more than 270g, overtaking fish and chips in the late 1980s. Hamburger consumption also increased, rising from about 80g in 1970 to almost 300g in 1990.

Moving further, accompanying this change in the choice of foods was an increase in the amount of fast food consumed. In 1970, British consumers ate about 450g a week of fast food. In 1990, on the other hand, this had more than doubled, to 1000g.

In conclusion, although there was a big increase in the consumption of pizza and hamburger, sales of fish and chips decreased.
