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.

• geometry -

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)

• geometry -

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

• geometry -

No because that would be three different lines connecting each point not just one straight line through them all it wouldn't work out

• geometry -

Correct, so A is false.

• geometry -

yes a is false
