The charts below compare the age structure of the populations of France and India in 1984.
看到这样一个图形大家会觉得这道题很难吧，Simon看到题目时这样说，“I found this one difficult, so don't worry if you did too!”。所以大家别怕，连雅思考官都说难呢!
The two charts compare the populations of France and India in terms of age distribution by gender in the year 1984.(第一段不需要太长，简单明了，留下好印象，提起考官兴趣。)
It is clear that the population of India was younger than that of France in 1984, with a noticeably larger proportion of people aged under 20. France, on the other hand, had a significantly larger percentage of elderly inhabitants.(先介绍两个国家整体上最明显的对比)
In India, close to 14% of people were aged 5 or under, and each five-year age bracket above this contained an increasingly smaller proportion of the population. France’s population, by contrast, was more evenly distributed across the age ranges, with similar figures (around 7% to 8% of all people) for each five-year cohort between the ages of 0 and 40. Somewhere between 10% and 15% of all French people were aged 70 or older, but the equivalent figure for India was only 2%.(详细分析两个国家差别最明显的年龄群体并以详实的数据进行描述)
Looking more closely at gender, there was a noticeably higher proportion of French women than men in every cohort from age 50 upwards. For example, almost 3% of French 70- to 75-year-olds were women, while just under 2% were men. No significant gender differences can be seen on the Indian population chart.(最后不忘从性别的角度去分析人口比例的差距。图表中信息已经全部展现，无须结尾)
