Consider the following line graph and an introduction written by a student:



The bar graph shows the number of Japanese tourists who travelled abroad between 1985 and 1995.

What's wrong with this sentence?  

The issue is with the word 'between'.  The dates 'between 1985 and 1995' are actually 1986 to 1994.

Therefore, we recommend that a better way to write the above sentence is thus:

The bar graph shows the number of Japanese tourists who travelled abroad.  The period begins in 1985 and ends in 1995.
