How many planes contain the same three collinear points?

Infinitely many planes may contain the same three collinear points if the planes all intersect at the same line.


Exactly one line may contain two points?

Yes and they are the end points


How many lines pass between two points?

If the line is straight, then only one line may connect two points.


Three points are collinear true or false?

Not enough information. Collinear means the points are on the same line. If you have any three points, they may, or may not, be on the same line.


How many different planes may share exactly one point?

None. In conventional geometry, any intersection of two planes defines a line, which is an infinite number of points. Many planes may intersect along a single line, or any pair of planes may intersect creating a unique line, but however they intersect, the number of shared points is infinite. If the the planes do not intersect (if they are parallel), then they share zero points.


Is a line a series of points that extends in two opposite directions?

Yes. Infinitely may points.


What is the minimum number of points any line contains?

In Euclidean geometry each line contains a minimum of an infinite number of points. In projective geometry, though, a line may have as few as two points.


A straight path of points that continues without end?

One would say that this is the definition of a line, however, your question says "A straight path of points" and a line only have one point but no end. So it may be a line or may be considered infinite points.


What is the intersection of a line and a sphere is called?

Two points. These may coincide if the line is a tangent to the sphere.


How many many points need to determine a trajectory line?

Infinitely many. The trajectory of a typical space mission may be adjusted several hundred times and all these changes need to be accommodated in the set of points.


Is it true that a circle and a line may have three points in common?

yes
