I am sure this is the line graph as I have done it recently.
1. You should include the type of chart in your writing, in your case, "line graph"
2. You should not use "illustrate". I read on englishforum that "illustrate" means "make a picture", so you should use this for map, diagram, or process. In line graph, I think using "show", or "compare", or "plot" will be better.

3. You should not copy entirely the topic given to you. Rewrite it in your own way, for example, "the line graph compares the percentage of homes having access to one or more of these items:....". Remember to include names of the items and timeframe in the beginning.

4. I think "percentage of using CD player" is not good. You may write "percentage of homes/families using..."
5. You may want to make "only the percentage of Internet access..." a separate sentence. Moreover, this clause needs a bit of correction, like "In 1998/99, Internet connection first appeared"

6. In 1996, CD player was...homeS in UK..", you forgot "s" there. And I think "60% of users" will be more suitable.
7. "with 17% OF users". You should add OF
8. You should make your writing into three or four paragraphs.
