Model Answer:

This table compares the different goods sold by a coffee shop which is located in an office building during a typical weekday in correlation with the time in the day.

Firstly, coffee sales were maximum(265) in the morning from 7:30 to 10:30, decreased steadily after 10:30 to reach less than 150 by 5:30, then rose to 200 in the evening. In addition, Tea sales showed similar pattern to coffee, they stood at 110 in the morning, less than half the coffee sales in the same period and fell to 35 between 2:30 and 5:30. However, they almost doubled in the evening between 5:30 and 8:30.

On the other hand, pastries sales fluctuated throughout the day with the peak in the morning 7:30 - 10:30 of about 275 and the bottom in the evening 5:30 - 8:30 of about 80. Moreover, sandwiches sales in the period of 7:30 - 10:30 and 8:30 - 5:30 were similar, 50 and 40, respectively. Sandwiches sales were the highest between 10:30 and 2:30 (200 sandwiches), almost two times the sales in the evening.

To conclude, it can be clearly seen that different goods experienced different patterns of sales throughout the day.
