What's wrong with this one?

Curves rendered as ribbons? The 3-dimensional rendering of the curves is entirely gratuitous.

What should have been done?

Without a doubt, it's difficult to display multiple curves simultaneously and ensure that the individual curves may be seen. Colors would be nice, but if color is not allowed, four different line types (solid, dashed, dotted, dash-dotted) might work.
