Analytical Paragraph for Class 10
The table shows a comparative study of staple food items over three years, from February 2018 to January 2021.
According to the given data, the prices have been rising steeply. Flour prices have almost doubled in just three years. Tour daal prices showed almost a two-third hike in prices. Rice rates increased by 50%. Groundnut oil recorded the least rising speed of around 45%. Skyrocketing prices of oil and Tour daal make it unfit for a poor family’s kitchen budget.
To summarize, a hike in basic food prices means the poor can’t afford even one square meal. The government must control the prices of essential commodities.
