    The table reveals the customer durables of electronic appliances in Britain within a timespan of 12 years.

    Overall, the ratio of television, vacuum cleaner , refrigerator and washing machine dominated except central heating, video , dishwasher and telephone over the period of 12 years.

    According to the table, the percentage of central heating increased from 39% in 1972 to 64% in 1983 and the ratio of television was more than 90% in all given years. While video was the equipment which was sold 18% only in 1983, less than 6% sales of dishwasher was seen from 1978 to 1983.

    As per the table, a difference of 8% was apparent in vacuum cleaner during 12 years. In addition, the percentage of refrigerator was 73 in 1972, and by 1983 , it had experienced a rise to 21% in 1983. Furthermore,

      ‘the percentage of central heating increased from 39%’ it is not the percentage of central heating technically it is the percentage of household that had the facility of central heating. ‘While video was the equipment which was sold 18%’ again the data is not about sales but the percentage of houses that had video. ‘ it had experienced a rise to 21%’ not rise to 21% but a rise of 21 percentage points.

    There is no doubt that sports play an integral role in individuals’ life. While it is believed that group outdoor games have many advantages, others opine that sports should be played alone. But I support the former notion and both views will be discussed in the following section.

    To commence with, some sort of social skills are learnt by playing sports in group. Furthermore, players are communicate with plenty of people while playing outdoor sports in team and they learn several skills like sharing, caring, co- operation, leadership skills , communication skills. Secondly, the best result can be achieved with the help of all team members. Moreover, team members together face difficult situations in game and easily figure out problems to defeat rival teams.To illustrate, the captain of Indian cricket team Virat Kohli always asks all cricketers’ opinion while facing critical situation and wins all cricket matches for India.

    On the other hand, decision making skill is learn in individual game. Furthermore, solo sports have profound influence on individuals because people feel freedom and do not bother about other players as well as they have to take decision alone. Therefore, people learn to cope with lose and only one person achieve fame and success. For instance, Saniya Mirza, a great tennis player is a proud of India who plays tennis and all credits go to her for her victory.

    To recapitulate, although player gets liberty and person becomes famous in the world when they win game in individual sports, social education can be taken and game can be made successful with the help of team members in group sports.

      ‘some sort of social skills’ do not write like this it gives the impression that you are not certain in your opinion instead write important social skills can learnt by playing in a team. ‘players are communicate with’ are should not come here. ‘decision making skill is learn in individual game’is learnt. ‘people learn to cope with lose’ loss not lose.
