Solution: The lines passing through one given point is unlimited. The lines passing through two given points are only one. The lines passing through three collinear points are one. 11. Is it ever possible for exactly one line to pass through three points? Solution: Yes. It is possible for a line to pass through three points, if the points lie on a straight line. 12. Explain why it is not possible for a line to have a midpoint. Solution: We know that the length of the line is infinite and it is not possible to find the midpoint. But it is possible to find the midpoint of line segments. 13. Mark three noncollinear points A, B and C in your note book. Draw lines through these points taking two at a time. Name these lines. How many such different lines can be drawn? Solution: It is given that the three collinear points are A, B and C We know that three lines namely AB, BC and AC can be drawn using these points.

Coplanar points are the points that are in the same plane. Thus, (i) Can 150 points be coplanar? (ii) Can 3 points be noncoplanar? Solution: (i) Yes. We know that the group of points which lie in the same plane are coplanar points. Hence, 150 points can be coplanar. (ii) No. We know that 3 points can be coplanar as we can have plane which contains 3 points. Hence, 3 points cannot be noncoplanar. 15. Using a ruler, check whether the following points given in Fig. 10.30 are collinear or not: (i) D, A and C (ii) A, B and C (iii) A, B and E (iv) B, C and E Solution: (i) The points D, A and C are collinear. (ii) The points A, B and C are noncollinear. (iii) The points A, B and E are collinear. (iv) The points B, C and E are noncollinear. 16. Lines p, q are coplanar. So are the lines p, r. Can we conclude that the lines p, q, r are coplanar? Solution:Read More
