The line graph illustrates how much renewable power was used in 6 countries over a forty-year period starting from 1971.

Overall, there was an increase in the share of renewable energy consumption in Denmark, France, Germany, the US, and the UK, with the United States witnessing the most dramatic rise, while a decline was seen in Finland. However, Finland consistently had the highest figure throughout the period.

About 1% of the total energy consumption was from renewable sources in the United Kingdom in the first year, with a levelling off from 1971 to 1976 and a final gradual increase to 7% in 2011. Similar changes, but to greater extents, can be seen in the figure for the United States, which sharply increased from 3% in 1971 to reach the peak of 18% in the last year of the period, despite some fluctuations.

The proportion of renewable energy used in Finland and Denmark decreased from about 24% and 15% in 1971 to 16% and 10% in 1986, followed by a final growth to approximate 24% and 17% 25 years later. Meanwhile, the figures for France and Germany fluctuated slightly at 10% and 5% until 1991 and increased to just under 15% and 13% in 2011 respectively.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

The instructions are not written in grammatical English, and it is not typical of IELTS task 1 exams. IT looks like someone scribbled on graph paper.

This is not a good task for practicing. Where did you get it from?

It is taken from the real IELTS test in July 2020 in my country.

It is taken from the real IELTS test in July 2020 in my country.

I am shocked. It was not written by a native English speaker.

There are no units on the graph, and the instructions do not mention the different countries. And the first sentence is ungrammatical English. "Picture" is a strange noun to refer to a graph.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

Here is the same task with instructions in good English.

The line graph illustrates (Not a good word choice) how much renewable power was used ( How much would be a value such as 1.786 Gigawatt hours. Your description is incorrect.) in 6 (Use words for small numbers that are not data values.) six countries over a forty-year period starting from 1971. (Your description is incomplete. What are the names of the countries?)

Overall, the relative use of renewable energy sources did not exceed 25% for any of these countries. there was an increase in the share of renewable energy consumption in Denmark, France, Germany, the US, and the UK, with the United States witnessing having the most dramatic rise, while a decline was can be seen in Finland. However, Finland consistently had the highest percentages figure (wrong word) throughout the period.

About 1% of the total energy consumption was from renewable sources in the United Kingdom in the first year, with a levelling off from 1971 to 1976 and a final gradual increase to 7% in 2011. Similar changes, but to a greater extent greater extents, can be seen in the figure for the United States, which sharply increased from 3% in 1971 to reach its maximum value the peak (Wrong word. This is not a peak.) of 18% in the last year of the period, despite some fluctuations.

The proportion of renewable energy used in Finland and Denmark decreased from about 24% and 15% in 1971 to 16% and 10% in 1986, followed by a final growth to approximate 24% and 17% 25 years later. Meanwhile, the figures for France and Germany showed slight variations within a range of 5 and 10% fluctuated slightly at 10% and 5% until 1991 and increased to just under 15% and 13% in 2011 respectively.
