Band 8 IELTS report sample

The given pie charts show residential, industrial and agricultural usage of water in two areas of the US – San Diego County and California – and the rest of the world. In San Diego and California, the least amount of water (17% and 28% respectively) is used for agricultural purposes. In both regions, most of the water is used by residents. While the residential water consumption only has a slight advantage (39%) over the others (33% for industry and 28% for agriculture) in California, in San Diego, more than half of the water goes to homes. While comparing, make sure that you are comparing two things of the same kind. Here you are comparing the distribution of water usage in one place with the distribution of water usage in another place. You are not comparing distribution with San Diego. In comparative structures, words like ‘that’ and ‘those’ are very important. Most of the water (69%) is consumed by agriculture in the world. The amount of water used for industrial purposes in San Diego is the same as that in the rest of the world. Both account for 23% of the total water consumed. The residential water usage, which has the largest percentage in the two regions in America, however, occupies a mere 8% of worldwide water usage. In summary, there is an obvious difference between the water usage in the world and in the two areas in America. In San Diego and California much of the water is consumed by homes whereas in other parts of the world agriculture is the biggest consumer of water resources.
