    The bar graph reveals the employment rate of several countries in two different years.

    Overall, the figure of male employment rate dominated in all given countries in 2005, whereas the employment rate of females in both years and males in 1995 ebbed and flowed.

    According to the graph, in 1995, fluctuations can be seen from around 55% to 72% in the employment rate of males in all countries. Furthermore,in 2005, the employment rate of Australia stood at nearly 68% and it rose to 82% points in Iceland. Moreover, a difference of almost 1% was apparent in the employment rate of the UK and Usa.

    As per the graph,in 1995, the employment rate of UK was twofold as opposed to Australia and a reduction of about 15% was noticed in the employment rate of Iceland than Switzerland. In addition, the employment rate of New Zealand and USA was close to 41% and 61% respectively.Additinally, in 2005, the employment rate of women was less than 70% in the Australia, Switzerland and Iceland , and it was under 65 % in the UK, New Zealand and USA.

      ‘in 2005, the employment rate of Australia stood at nearly 68% and it rose to 82% points in Iceland’ for whom male or female, you need to mention specifically. Always write the with USA and UK. Same mistake in the last paragraph there is no mention for whom you have written the employment percentages, how would the examiner whether you are talking about males or females.

    There is no doubt that plenty of people every year migrate from rural area to urban area and prefer to live in huge buildings.However this development has both pros and cons, I believe that merits outweigh demerits and both views will be discussed in the following section.

    To commence with, apartment provides several facilities and security. Furthermore, 24 hours security guard is there and cameras are installed , people can enjoy leisure activities like swimming pool and they can interact with many people of different culture in club. Also, children can play with peers in garden and individuals get special parking space. Secondly, people live more convenient life.Since usually buildings are constructed in the heart of the city, transportation, education, shopping malls are accessible easily. To illustrate, in India,in Mumbai Maharashtra, 90% people live in apartment as raw house or bunglow is expensive as compared to apartment and all people cannot afford the high cost of cottage.Thus, small flats are opted by individuals.

    On the other hand, skyscrapers are precarious in metropolitan cities. Furthermore, these are designed vertically in shape and accommodate plenty of people in one building.In addition, many buildings collapse in natural calamities like earthquake and people die.For instance, in India, about more than 100 apartment destroyed and people died in Bhuj due to earthquake in 2007 as well as people across the globe had helped to victims at that time by providing rudimentary amenities.

    To recapitulate, although people who live in apartment have risky life, they can indulge in some activities everyday and people do not bother about going far away for enjoyment and shopping from their house.

      ‘malls are accessible easily’ are easily accessible. ‘skyscrapers are precarious’ precarious is not the write word to use here, precarious means a building which is about to fall. Your argument against the statement is not very strong, need to give better argument. You have completely misunderstood the statement. The statement says that people prefer to live in apartment but you started with huge buildings and then said that merits are more of living in buildings. It is a very confusing attempt.
