Hello respected teachers,

Is my understanding of the following sentences correct?

The graph shows that consumption of chocolate was not quite as high in 2012 as in 1992.

(The consumption of chocolate was slightly higher in 2012 compared to 1992.)

Coffee drinking was nearly as popular in 2011 as in 2010.

(Coffee drinking was slightly less popular in 2011 compared to 2010.)

I am looking forward to your answers.

No, it means the opposite. It was slightly higher in 1992.

Yes, that is correct.
