The chart and table below give information about population figures in Japan.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
You should write at least 150 words.
The bar chart illustrates the population trend in Japan from 1950 until 2055 with a 5-year interval. Overall, it can be clearly seen that while the population size had a steady growth in the past, it slowed down in the present and is predicted to fall sharply in the future. In addition, the proportion of senior citizens (65+) is estimated to go up significantly.
In 1950, with 84.1 million people, Japan began to grow in population continuously reaching 123.6 million in 4 decades. However, the growth slowed down for the next 15 years, witnessing only 127.8 million by 2005, the highest figure over the period. Starting in 2010, the number experienced a decline and the downward trend is predicted to further util 89.9 million in 2055.
Looking at the changes in the population size of those aged 65 or over, from 4.1 million in 1950, it climbed fourfold to 25.7 million in 2005 where 20% of the total population was in this age group. In the future, the figure is estimated to grow to 37.2 million (2035). despite a slight fall in 2055 (36.5 million)

You should write at least 250 words.
Many experts in human psychology claim that colour affects people's feelings therefore it is argued that the aspect of colour should be given significant attention when offices and hospitals are decorated.
I believe the statement is absolutely true because emotion is often indirectly influenced by surroundings. It means the surrounding colour can calm or intensify the mood of someone. The reflection of the colour mostly determines how people respond to a certain situation. To illustrate, one's can feel calm when confined in a bright room compared to a dark room which causes anxious experiences.
In terms of colour's influence on people's health, I strongly feel certain colours such as green and pink can be good for patients' health. As there are considered cold shades, they are capable of developing the confidence and mental clarity of sick people, thus improving their health effectively. This could be the reason why the majority of hospitals use green or pink shades on their walls or in their curtains. Furthermore, colour such as red or other hot shades is avoided in the workplace to reduce any conflicts among workers. On the other hand, yellow or blue are used to enhance productivity as they are believed to increase the concentration of people while working.
In conclusion, I do agree that colour can impact one's emotions as well as health can be enhanced by using cold shades and blue and yellow for improving concentration and productivity in working spaces. Therefore, choosing the right colour schemes when decorating important places is vital.
