The three Y axis graph contains three layers:

Layer 2 and layer 3 are linked to layer 1.

The X axis in both layer 2 and layer 3 has a straight one-to-one link with the X axis in layer 1.

If three columns of values are selected (or a range of three columns), then one data plot displays in each layer. Each data point in the data plot is connected by a line. The default line connection between points is a straight line.
