    Default Describing chart

    Please share your opinion about my writing below.

    The chart shows average hours spent doing housework each week by gender and marital status in Fancyland. Write a report of about 150 words for your examiner(s) describing the information in the chart



    The chart shows average hours spent doing housework each week by gender and marital status in Fancyland. In general, whatever their marital status is, women always work harder on housework than men.
    It can be seen clearly from the chart that men spend just around 20 hours doing housework per week. The most hard-working of them are divorcés and widowers with 21 and 24 hours respectively. The others spend less than 20 hours, of whom single men living with parents spend the least time (15 hours)
    The situation is partly similar to women’s. Single women living in parental home also spend the least time doing housework with 19 hours per week but married ones the most time with 35 hours per week. Cohabitants and divorcées have the same average weekly housework hours of 31 hours. The two left types of women slightly differently spend in the region of 25 hours per week.
    On the whole, it’s obivous that people without family ties care fore housework less than those who have ever married.

    There are some grammar errors in your paragraph.

    But your last statement is a shocker.

    On the whole, it’s obivous that people without family ties care fore housework less than those who have ever married.

    Where did you get that conclusion and what does "care for housework" mean?

    Hee , maybe I'm wrong. I just guess so.
    "Care for housework" means spending time on housework. Perhaps it's not suitable, I don't know.
    "Without family ties" means having never get married. I see that never married people spend less time on housework than married people, divorced and widowed people.
    And could you please point out grammar errors for me?
    Thank you very much
