It depends on at what angle the plane and the cylinder are intersecting. If they are standing upright and intersect at 90 degrees (from the altitude of the shapes), a line in the shape of a circle forms.

A point.

No. It can be the whole line.

In most cases, in a single point. It is also possible that there is no intersection, or that the intersection is the entire line.

Two parallel lines, a plane and a line in a plane parallel to it.

If the line is not IN the plane ... it just zaps through the plane from some direction ... then it touches the plane in only one point. The intersection is a point.if it is lined up with the plane, then the intersection is a line.

Unless the line is a subset of the plane, the intersection is a point.

The intersection of two lines is always a point or the line itself. The intersection of a line with plane also the same as above.
