An equilataral triangle

if the triangle is a right angle it has 2 perpendicular line segments.

A polygon which has 3 line segments is a triangle. Either Isoceles, scalene, or an equilateral triangle with occur.

The answer depends on what point of concurrency you are referring to. There are four segments you could be talking about in triangles. They intersect in different places in different triangles. Medians--segments from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side. In acute, right and obtuse triangles, the point of concurrency of the medians (centroid) is inside the triangle. Altitudes--perpendicular segments from a vertex to a line containing the opposite side. In an acute triangle, the point of concurrency of the altitudes (orthocenter) is inside the triangle, in a right triangle it is on the triangle and in an obtuse triangle it is outside the triangle. Perpendicular bisectors of sides--segments perpendicular to each side of the triangle that bisect each side. In an acute triangle, the point of concurrency of the perpendicular bisectors (circumcenter) is inside the triangle, in a right triangle it is on the triangle and in an obtuse triangle it is outside the triangle. Angle bisectors--segments from a vertex to the opposite side that bisect the angles at the vertices. In acute, right and obtuse triangles, the point of concurrency of the angle bisectors (incenter) is inside the triangle.

Line segments are lines so the answer is 3.

No. A triangle contains three line segments.

It is a triangle similar to the original but quarter the size.

Not always, but it is possible. An obtuse triangle has 1 angle which measures greater than 90 degrees. A scalene triangle has all different lengths in size. It is possible for a triangle to have different angles, with one above 90 degrees, and have all different side lengths.
