Can you guess why the underlined words are important in IELTS exam?

The two pie-charts present information on the production of potatoes in different regions of the world during 1993 and 2003.

Overall, while the European Union was the largest producer in 1993, it was replaced by China a decade later. Moreover, India was the smallest potato grower in 1993 and the United States relegated to this position in 2003. (compare the two charts)

In 1993, the European Union accounted for 29 percent of global potato production followed by China which grew only half as much. While the Russian Federation’s production grew 13 percent, the United States accounted for half of that number. India had just 6 percent share and all other regions together produced 30 percent.

In 2003, China became the largest producer with 22 percent share and the European Union’s share dropped by 9 percent. The share of Russian Federation and the United States shrank by 2 percent and 1 percent respectively and that of India increased by 2 percent. All other regions combined produced one-third of global potato production.

Total Words = 164. Please note that I’ve used various ways and means to express potato production – produced, grew, accounted for, share.
