My answer is 4.

Equation of the line passing through the (5,7) and (10,-3) is -
y + 2x = 17

Now we have to find the integer points lying on the above line and between the above given points.
Range of x and y of the points between (5,7) and (10,-3)-
x< 10
-3<x<7

Now find the values of x and y in the above range and satisfying the equation.
These points are (6,5), (7,5), (8,1) and (9,-1).

Can anybody suggest a better method.

This is the right approach. But why did you not include points A and B in the set of points?

Should they be included only if the question states explicitly?

I agree with iamba. I would have chosen A and B as well. Does the term between exclude A and B?

The question says - points lie between A and B. That's why I have NOT included the points A and B in count.
