What is wrong with this data?

Question: Construct a 100% stacked column chart to illustrate the relationship between a person's age and reasons for searching health information on the internet. Are there any problems with the data? How do you know? Explain briefly.

The pictures are in the two links below:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/7dx2bws1bx...pture.PNG?dl=0
https://www.dropbox.com/s/s7y45odc1h...ture6.PNG?dl=0

So far, the only thing that I can find that's wrong with the chart is that it appears to have missing data. The 'blue' part of the chart doesn't seem to belong there. All the other categories have reasons such as avoid, symptoms and medicine. Also, the raw data that I've included also have 2 missing data which suggests why the chart looks this way.

That's the only thing I can find that's wrong with the data. Is there something else that I haven't noticed?

Thanks!

I don't care. He should just post the relevant info in the OP. I don't want to click any links to answer his question.

I've attached the two pictures that i was talking about. it's probably not going to be clear.

I two links i gave above are linked to dropbox which gives clear pictures of the chart and raw data.

I don't like clicking links, suspicious or otherwise...and the thumbnails are unreadable. mathmathy, post your question by hand and someone may be able to offer appropriate assistance.

I have included the raw data of the 100% stacked column chart below. I have attached the actual chart as an image to this post. Thanks
