Specimens of Data Interpretation

Question 1.
Look at the graph and the paragraph below which provides an interpretation of the data given in the graph:
Graph to show number of whales caught in Antarctic (1985-2010)
GSEB Class 11 English Reading Comprehension Data Interpretation 1
Answer:
As whalers reduced catches of the larger whales, they switched to smaller species. This is evident when we compare figures for the Antarctic catch of the larger sei whale with those for small minke whale. In 1985, fifteen times as many sei whales as minke whales were caught. By 1995, catches of both the species were virtually the same (9000).

By the 2000, the situation had reversed and the number of minke whales killed more than doubled as compared to sei whales (6000). The graph shows that while the sei catch was reduced by 95% between 1985 and 2010, over the same period the minke whale catch was eight times greater. If these trends continue, the situation for the smaller species will be as bad as it used to be for the larger once.
