GDN - Difference between ad types

I am wondering about the difference between Responsive ads to Lightbox ads to dynamic ads.

Altogether, in terms of their functionality all look very similar. I see some fields that are available in one ad format and not in the other.

With that being said, I am not sure for what use case I should use what ad format and why.

Can you share a use case to use each of the above ad formats and their benefits for each use case?
