The chart and graph below give information about participants who have entered the Olympics since it began.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

Write at least 150 words.

The bar chart shows the number of men and women participated in the Olympic games while the line graph gives the number of all participants in the Olympics. The data is given for four years which are 1924, 1952, 1984 and 2012.

Overall, The number of all participants grew steadily through these years and the proportion of women who compete in the Olympic games increased among these 88 years.

The number of men participated in the Olympic games rose gradually and almost doubled from 3000 in 1924 to about 6000 in 2012. Although the number of women who were present in the Olympics was lower than men in all four years, females’ contribution to the games had a dramatic change. Just approximately 100 participants from about 3100 participants in the Olympic games 1924 were women, while in 2012 there were more than 4500 women between a few more than 10000 players in the Olympic games (about 40% of whole participants).

The bar chart shows the number of men and women [participate is intransitive.] who participated in the Olympic Games while the line graph gives the number of all participants in the Olympics from 1924-2012. The data in the bar chart is given for four years, which are 1924, 1952, 1984 and 2012.

The underlined part was not true of the line graph!

Overall, the number of all participants grew steadily through these years [and the proportion of women who competed in the Olympic Games increased among over these 88 years].

1) In the "overall" paragraph you missed a very important observation: in the first half of the period female participation was minimal.

2) The underlined part is not technically correct; just note the line graph from 1984 onward.

3) The bracketed part is mere repetition; 'grew steadily' is a kind of increase, which is also the case for men.

The number of men participated in the Olympics games rose gradually and almost doubled from 3000 in 1924 to about 6000 in 2012. Although the number of women who were present in the Olympics was lower than men in all four years, females’ contribution to the participation in the games had a dramatic change. Just approximately 100 participants from about 3100 participants in the 1924 Olympic games 1924 were women, while in 2012 there were more than 4500 women from among between a few more than a total of about 10000 players in the Olympic Games (about 40% of the whole participants).

Model:

The bar chart shows the number of male and female Olympic athletes for four separate years from the first games in 1924 up to 2012. The line graph also plots the whole trend of the numbers for all the participants throughout the period.

Overall, for the most of the period, male participants were by far larger in number compared to women, though the share of the both groups increased throughout the period in question.

In 1924, women participants were very few in number (around 100), whereas 3000 men were present. Although both female and male participants increased in the subsequent years, it was not until 1984 that women had a noticeable number of athletes present in the Olympic Games: just over 1,500, as opposed to around 5000 male participants.

From 1984 up to the end of the given period, women's participation increased more significantly vis-à-vis that of males; so that their share was just around 20% smaller than men's by comparison: 4800 vs 6000. All in all, the proportion of all the participants in the Olympics had more than tripled by 2012 since it began in 1924: 3,100 against 10,700.
