  1. A simple google on triangle incenter (or a quick review in your text) should make this easy to answer.
    What did you find? (Hint: (c) is false)

  2. Is it B? The incenter of a triangle always lies inside that triangle?
    "The incenter is the last triangle center we will be investigating. It is the point forming the origin of a circle inscribed inside the triangle. Like the centroid, the incenter is always inside the triangle. It is constructed by taking the intersection of the angle bisectors of the three vertices of the triangle."
