3.Any three points will determine a plane, provided they are not collinear. If you pick any two points, you can draw a line to connect them.

Three points can determine a plane but not 3-d space.

No, two points define a line. It takes three points to define a plane.

Yes since 3 non-collinear points determine a plane. Of course one can take any two of the three points and draw a line between them. There are an infinite number of planes going through this line. Now pick on more point, not on the line, and those three points uniquely determine a plane.

Any three points will determine a plane, provided they are not collinear. If you pick any two points, you can draw a line to connect them. An infinite number of planes can be drawn that include the line. But if you pick a third point that does not lie on the line. There will be exactly one plane that will contain the line and that point you added last. Only oneplane can contain the line, which was determined by the first two points, and the last point.

No. If the four points are coplanar, they determine only one plane!

Yes, three points determine a plane unless they are in a straight line. A plane is two dimensions a line is only one. You need a third point(not in the line) to define a plane.
