Task 1题目 The charts below show the percentage of working time in office spending on different tasks.
The two pie charts illustrate there were significant changes in the proportion of office time spent on a range of tasks in 1980 and 2006.
At 35%，it is explicitly noticed that the largest proportion of time was consumed in paper documents in 1980, which，however, were not used at all in 2006. Bycontrast, as high as exactly half of the total time was allocated to computers in 2006. Also noticeable is that meeting time and other things remained unchanged, which leveled out at 16% and 14% separately.
Over the same period, a dramatic drop could be witnessed in the time spent on the remaining tasks, with talking with colleges declining sharply from 17% to 9%. It is using telephones and using emails that also lost people’s favor, diminishing by a half to 8% and 3% respectively in 2006.
Overall, workers spent more time on paper documents in 1980 but using computers became the dominant task in 2006.
