No but they are always coplanar.

sometimes

Is false

Non-collinear means that the points are not in a line. If only two points are given, they are always collinear.

Collinear points are points that lie on the same line. Noncollinear points do not lie on the same line. Any two points are always collinear, i.e. forming a line. Three or more points can be collinear along a single line.Collinear points lies on the same straight line.

"Collinear" means "on the same straight line".Two points are always collinear, because you can always draw a straight linebetween any two points. Three points may or may not be collinear.

sometimes

Is false

In order for three or more points to be collinear, they must lie on the same line. Two points would always be collinear. Noncollinear are points that do not lie in the same line.

no,three points can be non collinear

A set of 3 points will always be coplanar, but will only sometimes be collinear. Collinear points are always coplanar as well.

Two intersecting lines can always cover three non-collinear points.

Collinear points are three or more points lying on the same line.Non-collinear point are when less than three (not including three) points lie on a line.

Non-collinear means that the points are not in a line. If only two points are given, they are always collinear.

Collinear points are points that lie on the same line. Noncollinear points do not lie on the same line. Any two points are always collinear, i.e. forming a line. Three or more points can be collinear along a single line.Collinear points lies on the same straight line.

When you have three collinear points there is one gradient. I'm not sure what your question is specifically but when points are collinear they have the same gradient.
