### What is coplanar points?

Definition of Coplanar points: Coplanar means that the points
are on the equal plane. Plane is a two-dimensional object, with as
such is a bit more complicated.Collinear,line,plane and point are
the related terms of coplanar.
Points that are on the same plane. 2 points are always
coplanar...3 points are always coplanar...4 points are
sometimes coplanar.

### What is a coplanar point and non coplanar point?

Coplanar means "on the same plane", so we can imagine that non
coplanar means "not on the same plane".
For example, if you draw a square and point on a piece of paper,
the two objects are coplanar. However, if we were to add
depth and the objects were a distance apart, they are said to be
non coplanar.

### A line and a point not on the line are never coplanar?

No, they always are
From Wikipedia.org, "The World's Encyclopedia"
when I searched
coplanar
In geometry, a set of points in space is coplanar if the points
all lie in the same geometric plane. For example, three distinct
points are always coplanar; but four points in space are usually
not coplanar.
Since 3 points are always coplanar.
A point and line are always coplanar
