Report- example The People Have Spoken: Button-Down Shirts Are the Best Option For First Dates by Chiara Atik on July 13, 2011Chiara Atik Last week, we asked you what type of shirt is the best for guys to wear on a date. Are polo shirts acceptable? Does it even matter?what type of shirt is the best for guys The overwhelming majority of respondents seemed to think that button-down shirts are the best and safest option: they’re elegant, stylish, and easy to dress up or down. Polo shirts got 10% of the votes, though it must be said that people who hate polo shirts really hate polo shirts. Coming in last was graphic tees, with only 2% of the votes. The lesson is clear: don’t let your t-shirt do the talking. Of course, attire depends also on what type of date it is, but aside from a physical activity of some sort, button-down shirts will work for almost any date. Ladies, we want to know, would you reject a guy if he showed up for a date in the wrong clothing? If you’re anti-polo, would a polo be a dealbreaker? I truly hope it won’t.
Extra REPORT assignment- ANSWER Leisure activities compared The pie charts reveal information about the most common leisure activities which the American public engaged in between 1999 and 2009. Overall, the largest percentage of people living in the US enjoyed walking. As can be seen clearly, the figures for soccer, camping and walking increased slightly by 1-2% to 18%, 9% and 31% respectively during the ten-year period. On the other hand, the proportions of people taking up yoga (5 to 10 %) and swimming (9 to 18%) doubled over the same period. By contrast, the year 2009 witnessed a significant decrease in the percentages of American people participating in the remaining activities. To be more specific, the figure for jogging nearly halved from 7% to 3%. What is more, there was a dramatic fall in the proportion of aerobics players from 13% in 1999 to 4% in 2009. Finally, when it comes to bicycling, the figure for this activity dropped from 14% to 7%. The main features have been compared and contrasted (use linking words).
