Okay, here’s the outline information for introduction:

5 cities – NY, Madrid, Tokyo, London, and Frankfurt. Changes in average house prices. Base 1989. Duration 1990 to 2002.

Let us write an introduction using information written above:

“The given bar chart presents information on percentage changes in average house prices (do not find a synonym to this otherwise you’ll distort the meaning) of five metropolitan cities from 1990 to 2002 with 1989 as the base year.”

Metropolitan = Dense urban area

Base Year = Year on which prices of other years are built.

Now, we have 5 cities and 2-year durations – 1990 to 1995 and 1996 to 2002.

Let us choose durations to create structure.

Paragraph 1: 1990 to 1995

Fall in average house prices – NY, Tokyo, and London

Increase in average house prices – Madrid and Frankfurt

Paragraph 2: 1996 to 2002

Fall in average house prices – Tokyo

Increase in average house prices – NY, Madrid, Frankfurt, and London

Paragraph 3: 1990 to 2002

Prices increased during entire period = Madrid and Frankfurt

Prices Decreased during entire period = Tokyo

Prices moved from negative to positive territory = NY, and London. Both these witnessed huge fluctuation in prices.

That’s the structure. Clear and simple. Now, put this structure to a great answer. March!
