3.1. (5 points) Read the text about comparison of international commuting time (one way in minutes). What country corresponds to graph 2? Write your answer in the box.
The Japanese spend more time commuting than Europeans and, especially, North Americans. One out of four North Americans spends ten minutes or less commuting, and for two thirds, the journey to work tales less than 30 minutes. Only 24% of North American commuters spend more than 30 minutes going to work and only 8% more than one hour. The majority of Europeans also live within 30 minutes of their workplace or school. The number of commuters who spend between 30 and 60 minutes travelling to work, however, is 33% higher than in North America. In any case, very few Europeans or North Americans commute for more than one hour.
