This chart compares the data about structure of populations based on gender and age in two countries such as France and India in 1984.
In India, close to 14% of people were aged 5 or under, and each five-year age bracket above this contained an increasingly smaller proportion of the population. France’s population was more evenly distributed across the age ranges, with similar figures for each five-year between the ages of 0 and 40. Somewhere between 10% and 15% of all French people were aged 70 or older, but the equivalent figure for India was only 2%.
Looking at gender, there was a noticeably higher proportion of French women than men from age 50 upwards. For example, almost 3% of french 70 to 75 year olds were women, while just under 2% were men. No significant gender difference can be seen on the Indian population chart.
To conclude, It is clear that the population of India was younger than that of France in 1984, with a noticeably larger proportion of people aged under 20. France, on the other hand, had a significantly larger percentage of elderly people.

Nowadays education plays one of the crucial role in people's lives. Many parents believe that arranging extra tuition for their children after school and in holidays will build their career even more powerful. I agree with parent's position that it is important to visit to extra classes after school.
To begin with, education gives the opportunity for children to reach success in the future. Accordingly, it is essential to do everything from what you can receive knowledge. Furthermore, I can say from my own experience and some specialists researches that knowledge is useless without applying it. In other words, children should have more practice in their education. For instance, now I understand that I do not remember anything that I did not use in practice. However, as everyone know, there is not enough time at school for improving skills. So, that is an incredible opportunity to do it during extra classes.
On the contrary, there is one issue, that all kinds of activities which organize after school, are can be a burden for children. They are tired, hungry and have only one wish to take a rest before they will need to do their homework. Accordingly, in spite of danger for the health, there is one more problem. Such classes just will be useless and irrelevant. Children just can not be productive after their school day.
In conclusion, it is crucial to notice that extra classes are very good and helpful. But children deserve at least little rest after a hard day.
