Answer:

Graphite does indeed have an exceptionally high melting point.

Explanation:

Graphite is a non-molecular species, in which the individual carbon atoms are bound together by strong covalent bonds in an infinite array. These bonds require much energy to disrupt. You will have to look up the melting points; they will be high.
