150 words at least.

Note: I’ve used PAST tense. In IELTS writing task 1, you should maintain only one tense (either Past or Present).


The given bar chart presents information on average evening sales in United States Dollars of an Indian restaurant in New York City, U.S.A. during five months in the year 2010.


Overall, the maximum evening sale was recorded in June followed by May, while the minimum sale of U.S.D 260 per evening was noted in April. Though the absolute amount of average evening sale varied from one month to another, the proportion of three items – meals, snacks, and drinks – stayed the same. These items contributed almost equally to the restaurant’s revenue. 

Each of these contributed approximately U.S. Dollars 90 during June and just U.S. Dollars 70 during February. Their contribution plummeted to only U.S Dollars 50 in April. 

Moreover, the contribution of takeaways in total evening revenue was the least. Though its proportion was higher during the months of March and May, it was lower in February. Desserts contributed the most to overall evening revenue during all months. Evening earnings from desserts vary from U.S. Dollars 70 to 100 during these months.

We’ve touched 171 words. Enough to call it victory. Good Luck learning IELTS English.
