The table below provides statistics on several major (MRT) systems around the world. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main feature and make comparisons were relevant.

The table compares the data of various major metro system around the world in scale of age, length and carrying capacity annually.

Overall, the newer the system the shorter of their total length. Built in 1863, London metro system is obviously the oldest and far greater in scale that hold a total of 1100 km long and carrying 548 million people annually yet the most recent one has only 14 km in term of length and is capable of transporting 90 millions of people per year. However, despite the length being shorter over year there has been a significant rise in the newer MRT’s capacity. The Paris system for example can take 850 visitors per year when almost downsizing half the length of the London’ s one. Fourteen years later, completed in 1904, the Tokyo MRT decrease its length to only 149 km yet it totally exceeds other countries in capacity with the largest number of passengers.

However, followings systems are smaller in term of both length and capacity. The metro in Washington DC can only carry 70 million of people and the Kyoto’s one being the least impressive out of the six metro, it was constructed with only 11 km long and carrying 11 million passengers annually.

(Your first paragraph is incomplete. How many rail systems are listed? Which ones are they? Be sure to tell the reader ALL aspects of the table in the first paragraph, but do not mention anything about the data content.)

Overall, the newer the system the shorter of their the total length. Built in 1863, London's metro system is obviously (opinion word. Leave out any such comments.) the oldest and far greater in scale, being that hold a total of 1100 km long and carrying 548 million people annually. (This is the end of the sentence. A sentence has one point. This is about the London metro system.) The most recently completed system, located in Los Angles, one has only 14 km in term of length is only 14 km long, and is capable of transporting 90 millions of (wrong usage: 90 million people) people per year. However, despite the length being shorter over year there has been a significant rise in the newer MRT’s capacity. (I don't understand your sentence. The newer systems are shorter in length, but have a higher carrying capacity. ) The Paris system for example can take 850 visitors (wrong word, wrong number. Eight hundred and fifty people would be transported in just an hour or two!) per year when almost downsizing (Wrong word. They did not tear up and destroy part of the system, did they? Downsize means to make the same thing much smaller. Companies downsize when the fire a lot of their staff and reduce the number of products they produce.) half the length of the London’ s one. Fourteen years later, Completed in 1904, the Tokyo MRT decreased its length (What was the original length of Tokyo's MRT? Why did the builders make it smaller?) to only 149 km yet it totally exceeds all the others other countries (These are city systems, not countries.) in total capacity, over 1.4 billion with the largest number of passengers annually.

However, followings (wrong usage) systems are smaller in term of both length and capacity. The metro in Washington DC can only carry 70 million of people and the Kyoto’s is the smallest one being the least impressive (That is your opinion. Do not write opinions in Task 1 essays.) out of the six metro, it was constructed with only 11 km long and carrying 11 million passengers annually.
