Overall, it is apparent that officers enjoyed drinking coffee the most. On the contrary, the figure for tea takings was the lowest.
As is observed from the shown illustrations, there is no doubt that the total selling of coffee stood in the first place. To be specific, workers often bought coffee in the morning (7:30 - 10:30) and evening (17:30 - 20:30), respectively 265 cups and 200 cups. However, tea is less favorite refreshment in this workplace. In fact, at noon (10:30 - 14:30) and in the afternoon (14:30 - 17:30), the number of tea sold was approximately 4 times as low as that of coffee sold.
Besides, the data on pastries from 7:30 to 10:30 was the greatest with 275. Nevertheless, in the next 4 hours, the figure reduced significantly to one-third. Additionally, people eat sandwiches the most over that duration with 200 sandwiches sold

In this contemporary world, the decision of means of transportation sparked controversies among the public. In fact, it is widely acknowledged that a great proportion of people are primarily using their own car for traveling. This essay will elaborate on the impacts of this phenomenon and propose how the problem should be dealt with.
Without a doubt, over-reliance on cars can exert several undesirable influences. In the first place, it is able to cause traffic jams. To be specific, it is obvious that the population is increasing which is followed by an overcrowded population. Thus, if each individual drives in his or her private car, there will be numerous vehicles on the roads. Hence, traffic jams, or maybe accidents, will occur., especially in rush hours. Additionally, this tendency also leads to air population. Indeed, the car is not claimed to be eco-friendly means of transport because it releases a high amount of gas emission, carbon, and dust, which are the factors making the poor quality of air.
Clearly, some institutions and governments should take some measures to cope with this issue. One of the most notable solutions is government ought to motivate residents using public means of transport. This is proven by the fact that Japan has successfully encouraged its people to use electrical subways through some media campaigns and upgrading its public vehicles. Another point worth mentioning is that companies should shuttle their employees to workplaces by private vans. Therefore, the number of workers commuting by their own cars will go down.
In conclusion, it is obvious that over-reliance on cars leads to traffic jams and air pollution. Again, I suggest that governments and companies should encourage citizens to use public vehicles.
