Sample Answer:

The three provided graphs represent data on the type of music albums purchased by the different age group and sex in England. As is observed, Rock music is most popular among the three music types mentioned here and people purchasing classical music album are mostly over 45 years.

In all cases, men purchase more music album than women. Rock and pop music are most popular among young people while classical among the people over 45 years. The market of  rock music is mainly dominated by men with a purchase record of 30% compared to 17% purchase done by women. From the first graph, it is obvious that interest in pop music seems steady among the population who aged from 16 to 44 with 20% and after getting 45 years old people continue to buy pop type music albums.

Among the population of 25 to 34 years old, the rock music is most revered and it reaches its pick. Opposite to the classic music graph, the interest in rock music keeps falling after the 35 years age and a sharp fall after the age 45.
