Solution

## The correct option is C n2(n−1)∵n points are taken at one line and another n points are taken at other lines. ∴ Total 2n points are there in the plane in which n points are in a line and another n point are also in a line. Hence, number of triangles =2nC3−nC3−nC3 =2n(2n−1)(2n−2)6−2n(n−1)(n−2)6 =13n(n−1)(3n)=n2(n−1)
