The following tables depict the reliability of print and non-print academic materials as voiced by undergraduates and postgraduates at 3 different British universities.
Write a 150 word report for a university lecturer summarizing the information given.
The two charts illustrate the views of undergraduate and postgraduate students from 3 different British schools on the reliability of print and non-print academic resources. Across all spectrums, students feel printed materials to be more reliable than their non-print counterparts.
75% of undergraduate students at Cambridge and 81% of undergraduate students at both Oxford and Leeds gauge printed material ‘reliable’. These 3 figures are all lower than their postgraduate equivalents, who support printed materials in strengths of 92% at Oxford, 87% at Cambridge and 96% at Leeds. Thus, postgraduates are more likely to label printed material reliable than undergraduates at these 3 schools.
However, this trend is reversed when looking at backing for non-print academic sources. The second chart depicts much weaker support for these resource types among undergraduates, namely 59% at Oxford, 63% at Cambridge and 61% at Leeds. Even more astonishing are the numbers of postgraduates who feel positive about non-printed academic items. These values are 50%, 54% and 47% for the same 3 schools.
The charts depict a trend in which positive opinions regarding the reliability of printed material move in tandem with academic level of study.

___________Insert your sentence here!____________. Consumption for all countries varied between 1800 and 3350 calories and the differences seen do not appear to be sensitive to continent.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the country with the highest caloric intake was the United States, with a staggering 3350 calories consumed per day on average. Not far behind was New Zealand, where people consumed about 3200 calories per day during the year in question. Intakes for Spain and Mexico were slightly higher than 2500 calories per day. On the lower side of the spectrum were countries like China, at 2200 daily calories, India, as 2100 daily calories, and Somalia and Indonesia, both at roughly 1800 calories per day. When comparing the highest and lowest values, it appears as though Americans in 2003 ingested almost twice as much food as Indonesians.
The values presented in this graph are thought to be reflective of the diet, lifestyle and culture of each country.
