Two lines that do not intersect on the same plane are Parallel lines.

Two lines can lie in one plane. For example, parallel lines are lines that intersect and lie in the same plane.

Yes- planes contain infinitely many points and every pair of points in plane determine a line in that plane, so every plane contains infinitely many lines.

A point is a single spot in space. A line is the connection between two points. A plane is the space made up between three or more lines. A plane has infinite lines and therefore infinite points.

All non-parallel lines in a plane will intersect at some point in the plane.

3 lines and one plane

Two lines that do not intersect on the same plane are Parallel lines.

Two lines can lie in one plane. For example, parallel lines are lines that intersect and lie in the same plane.

In plane geometry a line is a two dimentional object between two points. If a line or a point is not on the line it, by definition, does not contain them. The answer therefor is infinite. Unless it is a closed line which has a slightly different definition but the answer is the same.

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.
