    Oveeall, it is evident that there was a significant increase in the number of toursit after its renovation. In addition, the review of the sightseers were outstanding after the refurbishment.

    1. Sorry for the late reply. I’d give your essay a 6. I don’t think you need to mention “no response”. This category is not important at all. Also, try not to describe trends in such detail. Instead, you should make some comparisons. At least point out the biggest categories in both years.

      ✖️ “74,000 people visites the museum prior to restoration, and it elevated to 92,000 after restructuring.”
      “Restoration” and “restructuring” don’t mean the same as “refurbishment”.

  4. The given table illustrates the number of visitors to Ashdown Museum in the previous year and the followed by year it was refurbished. The pie chart denoted their satisfaction level as a percentage in 5 categories considered for the same two years. The number of visitors had been increased over the year while their satisfaction level too had been increased.

    According to the survey, the proportion of satisfied customers had significantly increased twice the level after it was renovated. Both satisfied and highly satisfied proportion was one fourth of the total before and it had increased up to three third after the renovation. However half of visitors were in the category of either dissatisfied or highly dissatisfied before the renovation happened and it has grammatically decreased to lower than one fourth of the total. However the percentage who had not responded to the survey remains the same in both two years which was 5% of the total visitors.
    Moving on to the visitors count, there were 74000 in the year before it was refurbished, and the count increased significantly to 92000 after and it was a clear increment of 18000 head count.

    1. Hi, I’d give your essay a 5.5. It contains many grammatical errors. Also, you don’t need to describe the trends in such detail. Make some comparisons instead.

  5. The combination of table and pie chart reveals the information of count of people, who visited Ashdown Museum and survey pertaining to their satisfaction level prior and later to its renovation.

    Looking at the details, it is clear that a sharp incline was observed in visitors’ counting, after it was renovated, which rose by 18000 from 74000 of initial year. From this, 5 per cent individuals did not respond in the survey conducted and remained static for both time periods.

    Strolling forth, the proportion of people who stated their experience as ‘ satisfied ‘ was 15 and 35 respectively in both given years . With regards to those who rated themselves ‘ dissatisfied’ and ‘very dissatisfied’ , both showed a dramatic reduction, former reached to 15% from 40% over given years and latter plunged from 10% to its half after refurbishment. Although those who stated their satisfaction level as ‘ very satisfied ‘ were significantly above one- tenth initially, escalated to 35%in the later given year.

    Overall, it can be seen that along with an increment in number of folks visiting to Ashdown Museum, their satisfaction level also witnessed a surge. However, a drastic fall had been observed in dissatisfied visitors’ ratio.

    1. Sorry for the late reply, in your Details Paragraph 1, you used “from this”, but how did you know all the visitors took the survey? Besides, those who did not respond are not important at all. I don’t think you need to mention them.

      In your Details Paragraph 2, you only described the trends. There is no comparison. I think you should at least mention which group is the biggest after refurbishment.

      ✖️count of people
      ✖️visitors’ counting
      ✔️visitor count

      1. I think you can get a 6. You need to be careful with grammar. Most of your sentences either have grammatical errors or are unidiomatic.

        ..the proportionS of people who stated RATED their experience as ‘ satisfied ‘ was WERE 15 and 35 PERCENT respectively…
