Several other reasons are also </p><p>there like it provides help in current job, adds opportunities of promotions and somewhere </p><p>they enjoy the learning phenomenon, these three factors attract almost equal proportion of </p><p>students towards themselves. Comparatively, a small percentage of adults also decide to </p><p>study because they want to meet new people and they want to make themselves able to </p><p>change their current job. </p><p>The concept of sharing the cost of adult education is quite interesting because as per it, costs </p><p>40% should come from students side and 35% should come from employers side while 25% </p><p>from the taxpayers. </p><p>The idea of further study is a brilliant one and adults choose to do so because of their own </p><p>interest and want to strengthen their qualifications. </p><p>BIT2TASK1 </p><p>SOLUTION </p><p>A proper schematic diagram is given about the reliable forecasting of weather by Australian </p><p>bureau of meteorology like how they collect information and how they further process it and </p><p>how finally they meaningfully broadcast it to millions of users via three popular channels. </p><p></p></li><li><p>6 FOR ANY KIND OF IELTS PREPARATION HELP, 9996605415 </p><p>The whole process is divided into four meaningful channels likewise incoming information </p><p>platform, analysis &amp; forecasting station, preparing the broadcast and finally the broadcast. For </p><p>incoming information they use satellite, radars and drifting buoy and the information received </p><p>by these three platforms if further processed at terminal two i.e. analysis &amp; forecasting one </p><p>where satellite photo, radar screen and synoptic charts are used which gives data to prepare </p><p>the broadcast on station 3 and then finally data is communicated via television, radio and </p><p>recorded announcements to general public. </p><p>In a nutshell, the whole process is purposefully planned and automated to ensure the </p><p>accurate broadcasting of the possible weather updates every single day. </p><p>B1T3TASK1 </p><p>SOLUTION </p><p>The liking of fast foods in Britain is given to us likewise how much as per income standard per </p><p>week a person spends on them and secondly, we are nicely equipped with the changes in the </p><p>choice of fast foods for a span of twenty years. </p><p>Hamburgers are the first choice for high and average income slabs. Other two options are </p><p>equally liked by high ones. Whereas, fish and chips are on number two and pizza is at place </p><p>three for average ones. As far as the low income slab is concerned, they prefer fish and chips </p><p>most while hamburger is their second choice and least they love to have pizzas on their </p><p>plate. </p><p>On the other hand, the consumption of these three fast foods is showing a dramatic change </p><p>over the period of twenty years. Likewise in the 1970s, fish and chips was the first choice but </p><p>in 1990, the chair of head is taken by hamburgers. As hamburgers and pizzas are on a </p><p>significant growth move but fishes and chips are losing their hold continuously. </p><p>Hamburgers are liked by rich and middle class people and also, the consumption of </p><p>hamburgers are increasing considerably every year among Britain fats food lovers. </p><p>B1T4TASK1 </p><p>SOLUTION </p><p>The exceptional development picture of a village Chorleywood near London is given to us. </p><p>The evolution of establishment of residential areas is presented in it. </p><p>In the beginning in 1868, there were few residential areas but with the establishment of </p><p>railway station in 1909, people started living there as it got connected with other areas of </p><p>London and opportunities of growth had been started in the region. Within thirty years, a large </p><p></p></li><li><p>7 FOR ANY KIND OF IELTS PREPARATION HELP, 9996605415 </p><p>population as found its home in nearby areas of railway station and main roads. The means of </p><p>transportation are primary to develop any region. Likewise, in Chorleywood, it happened with </p><p>the progress in the means of transportation. With the passage of time, around in 1970s when </p><p>the network of railways and roads was much expanded, people started establishing </p><p>themselves in the suburbs. The basic thing which is coming out in this picture is with the </p><p>progress in transportation and inert connectivity among the village, people found it worthy to </p><p>get settled in Chorleywood. </p><p>With the passage of time and with availability of interconnectivity and connectivity with outside </p><p>areas Chorleywood found more people to choose it a worthy destination. </p><p>B2T1TASK1 </p><p>SOLUTION </p><p>For a span of eleven years, the percentage of households in Britain is clearly given with the </p><p>choices of consumer durables they have made during this period. Figures are quite </p><p>informative and presenting statistics on how choices have changed during eleven years. </p><p>Television and vacuum cleaners were at helm while central heating and refrigerators have </p><p>shown a strong presence in Britain houses and people took them on serious priority. With </p><p>same fashion, washing machines have also become a utility item for consumers. With the </p><p>evolution of telephones, people shown a keen interest in having a telephone at their home </p><p>and quantity almost doubled within eleven years. Dishwasher was out of regular trend and </p><p>was available in few houses. Trend of videos was new and it started with a good number. </p><p>People of England are quite sensible in choosing items of domestic use and they are more </p><p>open to things of primary importance like television, refrigerator, washing machine and </p><p>telephones. </p><p>B2T2TASK1 </p><p>SOLUTION </p><p>The given chart is expressing clearly the amount of time in a week spent by different </p><p>employment status people on leisure activities in the year 1998-99. The presentation is </p><p>informative and having impact in giving a concrete idea on choices of people for leisure </p><p>activities. </p><p>Males are playing a leading role in investing their time in leisure activities. The males and </p><p>females with unemployed and retired employment status are the top rankers in the list. </p><p>Females who are housewives, employed part time and employed full times are at second, </p><p></p></li><li><p>8 FOR ANY KIND OF IELTS PREPARATION HELP, 9996605415 </p><p>third and fourth position respectively. While males with full times work life spent almost half </p><p>times on leisure activities than males with unemployed and retired status. </p><p>From the chart it is quite clear that leisure activities are important part of life and they become </p><p>more important for people who are free because of retirement or jobless. Certainly, people </p><p>(males and females both) with work also prefer to enjoy their time. </p><p>B2T3TASK1 </p><p>SOLUTION </p><p>A clear statistic representation with two tables is shown to us. The first table is telling us the </p><p>purpose of travelling to abroad by people in UK during 1994 to 1998 while the second table is </p><p>sharing the information of preferred destinations all around the globe by UK people in the </p><p>same period. </p><p>Primary reason to travel abroad is making holidays memorable and meaningful. Business and </p><p>meeting to friends and relatives are on second and third priority of people in UK. There are </p><p>other reasons...</p></li></ul>
