The chart below gives information about car ownership per household in the UK from 1975 to 2005.

Overall, it is obvious that car ownership rose during this period. In particular, the number of households owning more than 1 car increased, while families with no car fell.

At the beginning of the period, families that had 1 car and no car accounted for the largest percentage, around 40. However, during the next 10 years, both saw a sharp decline to just 38% and 24% respectively. After this significant decrease, the figure for households owning 1 car started to rise gradually, finishing the whole period at nearly the same number from the beginning. On the other hand, families with no car fell continuously in quantity to just about 22%.

The trends for the other two, households owning 3 cars and 2 cars, were mostly upwards. They both started the period at just under 10%, however, at the end of it, they rise to nearly 4 times larger than the percentage of the beginning, at around 10 and 20 respectively.

Can you show us what the chart looks like?

Overall, it is obvious that car ownership rose during this period. In particular, the number (wrong word - percentage/proportion) of households owning more than 1 car increased, while those families with no car fell.

At the beginning of the period, families that had 1 car or and no car accounted for the largest percentage, around 40. (This is not accurate. The total is 88%. You can also give the individual values, but then you cannot use the superlative "largest". Families that had one car accounted for the largest percentage, 45%, with those without a car was the second largest category, at about 43%) However, during the next 10 ten years, these proportions both saw a sharp declined to just 38% and 24% respectively. After this significant decrease, the figure (wrong word. - percentage) for households owning 1 car started to rise gradually, finishing the whole period at nearly the same value as in number from the beginning. On the other hand, families with no car fell continuously in quantity to just about 22%.

The trends for the other two, households owning 3 cars and 2 cars, were mostly upwards. They both started the period at just under 10%, however, at the end of it, they quadrupled / rose rise to nearly 4 times larger than the percentage of the beginning, at around 10% and 20% respectively.

Thank you a lot
