No. Skew lines do not intersect

Skew lines never intersect. If two lines intersect, then they are known as "intersecting lines", not skew lines.

No, skew lines cannot be in the same plane, since they do not have a point on common. Two lines intersect if they lie in a common plane, and by definition, these intersecting lines are not skew lines.

No. Two lines can include the same point only if they intersect.

If the 2 lines lie in the same plane, and they are not parallel, then they will intersect at some point. If the 2 lines are skew lines, then they are not in the same plane, and they will not intersect (but they are Not Parallel)

SKEW LINES are neither parallel nor intersecting.

skew lines are noncoplanar lines, which means they aren't parallel and they also don't intersect skew lines do not intersect and are not coplanar

They are skew line. Skew line are two lines that do not intersect but are not parallel.Another definition is skew lines are straight lines that are not in the same plane and do not intersect.Either way, skew lines are the answer to your question since they are noncoplanar and do not intersect.

Each line can either intersect the edge which is common to the two planes at some point or be parallel to it. If the two lines intersect the edge, but at different points, then the lines are skew. If only one of the lines intersects the edge, then again the lines are skew. If neither of them intersect, then the two lines are parallel to the same edge and so they are parallel to one another so not skew.

Two lines that are not parallel and do not intersect are skew. If the non-intersecting lines are in the same plane then they are parallel.

No, skew lines are not perpendicular. Perpendicular lines intersect at an angle of ninety degrees, while skew lines never intersect (think in three dimensions or higher).

Skew. * * * * * FALSE. In fact, if they are skew, they must intersect. They have to be parallel for them not to intersect.
