From 1 to 10, if we say assembly is number 1 and languages like Javascript and Python are number 10, then you can say C is about 7 (or maybe 6).

Let's not forget the visual languages and DSL that are 10. I think Python and other so said high level languages are just unfortunate missteps of technology when quality and amount didn't not meet.
