Decide which one of the following statements is false.

a. any three points lie on a distinct line.

b. three noncollinear points determine a plane.

c. a line contains at least two points.

d. through any two distinct points there exists exactly one line.

my best guess would have to be either A or D.

Its a

because a line with just one point is called a ray and it starts from the point and it extends forever (so that's one point and a line)

If you have the three points of a triangle, could you draw one line through them all?

Correct, so A is false.
