Question

Rahul marked five points on a sheet of paper. What is the maximum number of points that can be collinear, if he wants to make a triangle by joining those points?


  1. 3

  2. 4

  3. 2

  4. 5


Solution

The correct option is B

4


If we mark five points on a paper, then to make triangle we need at least three different lines. So, the maximum number of points that can be collinear is four, as  shown in the figure below:

If all the five points are collinear then a straight line will be formed when these points are joined.
