    The bar, line segment, and the pie -charts are not only to illustrate the frequency distribution table but are also widely used in many other statistical situations.

    The bar, line segment, and the pie -charts are not only used to illustrate the frequency distribution table but also widely used in many other statistical situations.

    Re: correcting sentence

    It seems that the only change you have made is to omit are before also.

    You must leave it in.

    I would improve the start of the sentence thus:

    'The line segment, bar and pie charts are not only used. . . .'

    Tip for a better title: The bar, line segment, and the pie -charts.

    Please take the trouble to write Thanks in full (actually, you don't need to write it here at all; just click on the Like button when you get an answer you find useful).
