### What is section plane?

###### Asked in Algebra, Geometry

### Does a plane containing 2 points of a line contains the entire line?

Yes, a plane containing 2 points of a line contains the entire
line. Let us consider two points on a plane and then draw a line
segment joining those two points. Since the points lie on the plane
so line segment has to lie completely on that plane too. Now if we
extend the line segment indefinitely in both directions we get a
line and that line also has to lie on the same plane since some
definite part(line segment) of it(line) also lies on the same
plane.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Geometry

### A plane and a line sometimes never or always intersect in a single point?

A given plane and a given line don't necessarily have to
intersect at all.
If the line is parallel to the plane, then they never do.
The line can also be in the plane, and then every point
on the line is also
a point in the plane.
The most likely case, though, is that the line is not parallel
to the plane and
not in it. In that case, their intersection is a single
point.
So I guess the best answer from the allowed choices is
'sometimes'.
