The picture illustrates the different life stages of a salmon.

Overall, it can be observed that there are eight phases in the life cycle of a salmon, beginning with laying fertilized eggs by mature salmons in the river and ending with producing its own sets of fingerlings in the same river.

To begin with, mature salmons will produce fertilized eggs in the river and then the incubation period starts, which nurtures and helps the eggs to hatch. Next, the fertilized eggs will hatch into a freshwater hearing. These hearings will proceed to an estuary where they can mingle with other hearings.

In the subsequent stage, estuary hearings will then journey to a rearing area where they will join other hearings to develop into medium sized salmons. Afterwards, they will travel together towards the ocean to become fully grown salmons. Finally, the salmons will then proceed to the same river to produce fertilized eggs for the survival of its species.

The picture shows the procedure of how to create bricks to be used in construction.

Overall, it can be observed that there are eight stages in the process, beginning with the digging of clay by the digger and ending with the bricks being delivered to different building sites.

To begin with, clay is collected by a bulldozer and then taken to a metal grid with a roller to press the clay and to incorporate sand and water. After this, the processed clay will then be subjected to a moulder or a wire cutter machine to form the clay into bricks.

In the subsequent stage, the newly formed brick will be placed in a drying oven where it will stay for about 24-48 hours.  Next, the bricks will rest in two different chambers with temperatures ranging from 200 0C-9800C (1st chamber) and 8700C- 13000C ( 2nd chamber) respectively. Afterwards, the bricks will be exposed to a cooling chamber for about 48-72 hours and then later will be packed. Finally, the bricks are then stored and delivered to different construction sites.

The diagram illustrates the procedure of how to recycle worn-out glass bottles.

Overall, it can be observed that there are three phases in recycling used glass bottles, beginning with the collection of wasted bottles and ending with the delivery of newly created bottles.

Next, the bottles will be arranged and categorized into three colours (brown, green and clear).

In the subsequent stage, the bottles are then delivered to a glass factory where they will be smashed into small pieces. Then, the process continues by putting them into a burning furnace with temperatures ranging from 6000c up to 8000C and then a liquid is produced. Afterwards, the recycled liquid glass and new liquid glass will be combined and shaped in a glass mould. Finally, newly formed glasses are filled with products and delivered to different supermarkets.

The picture describes the production of coffee and the preparation for delivery into different stores.

Overall, there are 11 stages in manufacturing coffee. Beginning with picking up the coffee beans and ending with packaging and delivery for public consumption.

First, the mature coffee beans are picked up in the coffee field. After that, the collected beans are then dried under the sun and then roasted in a roasting oven. Next, the roasted beans are placed in a cooling area to lower the temperature immediately.  Afterwards, the coffee beans are then ground and then the mixture is later mixed with boiling water.

In the subsequent stage, the mixture of water and ground coffee beans is then strained and placed in a freezer to chill. Consequently, the frozen liquid is subjected to a grinder and arranged in a drying vacuum to remove its water content. Finally, the dried ground coffee beans are being packed in a jar and they are being delivered to different stores.

The picture illustrates the process and production of milk, cheese, cream and butter for public consumption.

Overall, it can be observed that there are eight stages in this process, beginning with the cows grazing on grass in the field and ending with milk and dairy products being sold in the market.

First, cows are released in the field to graze on the grass, and then they are subjected to a milking machine twice a day for milk collection. Next, the milk is being stored in refrigeration storage on a daily basis.  Following this, the milk is then collected and put into a tanker which then will be delivered to the dairy daily.

In the subsequent stage, the milk is being processed in the dairy into different milk products such as cheese, cream and butter, then the milk is then put through pasteurization and packaging. Finally, the milk and the dairy products are being delivered to supermarkets and shops for consumption.
