Line Graph
The line graph outlines the proportion of fast food consumed by teenagers in Australia from 1975 until 2000. The consumption rate was based on how frequent the teenagers eat fast food in one year. Overall, there was an upward trend in the consumption of hamburgers and pizza. Meanwhile, fish and chips consumption fluctuated.

In 1975, Australian teenagers only ate hamburgers 15 times per year. Ten years later, the number skyrocketed and was a little above 80. From 1985 to 1995, there was a slight increase in their consumption of hamburgers. The number then leveled off until the year of 2000. The consumption of pizza indicates the same pattern. Australian teenagers used to eat pizza five times a year. A decade later, the number rose to around 25 times each year. From 1985 to 1995, the consumption of pizza dramatically increased and nearly reached 85 times each year. The number did not undergo any change until the year of 2000.

Pie Chart
The pie charts compare the proportion of water consumption for three different purposes in six regions of the world. Units are measured in percentage. Overall, it can be seen that a significant amount of water is spent for industrial and agricultural sector.

Western countries tend to have higher water spending for industry. North America spends nearly half of its water supply for industrial purpose. Unlike the two sectors aforementioned, water consumption for domestic purpose is considerably low, making up 13% only. Agriculture becomes another sector which spends a lot of water. The percentage is three times higher than the percentage of domestic purpose. Europe's percentage of water used for industrial sector is just above 50%, a little bit higher than North America's. However, Europe's water use in agricultural sector only makes up a third of the whole consumption. Europe only consumes 15% of its water supply for domestic sector.

Unlike the western counterpart, Asian, South American and African countries allocate their water for agricultural sector. In South East Asia, Central Asia and Africa, the percentage of water used in agriculture is higher than 80%. South America spends 71% of its water provision for agriculture. Among these four regions, only South East Asia spends more than 10% of its water for industry. Although South America has lower percentage of water allocated for industry and agriculture, its percentage of domestic water consumption is the highest among the four regions. It makes up almost one fifth of its overall water consumption. Both Central Asia and South Asia spend 7% of its water for domestic purpose.
