Here’s a Facebook Friend’s answer. My additions are in BLUE and any remarks are in RED. Good Luck learning English!
“The table shows the percentage of expenditure by five countries namely(Ireland, Italy, Spain, Turkey, and Sweden) on a variety of items in the year of 2002. (Do not use Parenthesis in IELTS exam. Prefer a hyphen. “-“)
Overall, It is evident that despite although all countries spent most of their money on food, drinks and tobacco, Turkey and Ireland had allocated (don’t use SPEND again) the highest amount of money spending, whereas all countries had their lowest spending on leisure and education.
Turning to Turkey and Ireland, Turkey had (Avoid Past Perfect Tense) the highest spending expending (don’t overuse a word) on food, refreshments and cigarette, at 32.14%, which was nearly twice as much as Italy and Sweden. Ireland was the second highest money spender at 28.9%.
In regards to clothing and footwear market, Ireland, Spain and Turkey spent almost the same amount of money at an average of around 6.5% while Sweden spent the least at 5.4% and Italy spent the most at 9%.
In terms of leisure and education, Turkey spent twice as much as Ireland. Also, Italy and Sweden spent almost the same percentage of finance. However, Spain was the least money spender. (I guess that’s too much of “SPENDING”. Overuse of this word will cost you bands.)”
Bands = 6.5 (at best).
