Describe A Line Graph

The IELTS is an English proficiency test in which a student has to cross four stages or you can say you have to sit in four tests which are Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. Out of the four modules Writing is the most interesting part and considered to be the best. In this section you have to write the minimum but it has to be effective as well.
In writing sections you will experience how to solve a line graph which is very common in writing Task 1 along with bar charts, tables, pie chart, maps and diagrams. It is in the form of a visual image. It is a little complicated but if you practice more you can solve it.
