not sure but i will go for (b)

In case of 1, we may have the same plane or 2 different planes.

In case of 2, two intersecting lines will be in the same plane.

(1) any two points on line L and P are not collinear, hence coplanar.
(2) Point P can the point of intersection of Lines L and M, in which case P and any two points on L, or on M, are collinear. Insufficient

A it is.

(1) A line and a point - not on the line will define a plane, So (1) is sufficient to answer the question,

(2) if point - P on line :m is an intersection point of line L and line M, the condition holds no good, there can be infinite no of planes passing through point P and line L

Absolutely agree with Dharmin, your explanation is really to the point

Let me ask a stupid question here -- what's a plane? I initially thought it's the same thing as a quadret, but looks like I was off.
