eLearning Lesson 1 Task 1: Choice of Graphs

Among the 4 graphs (Line Graph, Bar Graphs, Pictograms, Pie Charts), identify ONE graph that is NOT an appropriate choice to represent the information?
      Why do you think it's not appropriate?
      What makes you think the 3 remaining graphs are appropriate?
I think the line graph is not an appropriate choice to represent the information as if one variable is much higher, as such, then it is hard to read as the green lines are distracting and variables further away from the vertical axis must go back through the line at the red point accurately to find the value. 
I think the rest are appropriate as each values are on its own while the line graph's one are all connected.
