  6. 6. Example http://marcus-businessenglish.blogspot.com Sales started the year at RM20m in the first quarter and increased slightly in the second quarter to RM27m. However, in the third quarter of the year, sales rocketed . In fact they more than tripled to RM90m. However, in the last quarter of the year sales returned to the same level as the beginning of the year by falling back to RM20.
  7. 7. High points and low points http://marcus-businessenglish.blogspot.com Sales bottomed out at RM22m in the second quarter. Then, after rocketing over the next couple of months, they peaked at RM90m.
  8. 8. Stability http://marcus-businessenglish.blogspot.com Sales fluctuated in the first five months of the year. They levelled off in the summer months. In August, sales fell sharply but then recovered in October.
