    I don't get why there can't be just 2 points of intersection for this question? Surely there could just be another line on the page that doesn't intersect with any of them? Or are they all continuous lines? Name:  ImageUploadedByStudent Room1446840011.616992.jpg

    You must assume all infinitely extend. Otherwise all options are possible

    I did assume that and got the correct answer, however I do think they should have clarified.
    Unless the mathematical definition of a line is one of infinite length (unless restrictions to domain or range).

    The mathematical definition is that a line is infinite. A line segment is finite, and a ray is infinite in one direction and finite in the other. It was the piece of paper in the question that threw me.
