  1. Think of great circles on a sphere. Those correspond to straight lines in a plane. An arc of a great circle is the shortest distance between two points, measured along the surface of the sphere. A great circle is one whose diameter is the same as the diameter of the sphere.

    not A: On a sphere, a great circle does not have infinite length.

    not B: Anything pertaining to a plane has no relevance on a sphere.

    not C: Two perpendicular great circles intersect twice. Think of the equator and a meridian. At each intersection there are 4 right angles.

    D: This is true. Although as in C, two "lines" on a sphere always intersect twice.

    By the way, that means that in spherical geometry, there are no parallel lines!
