Nowhere is it mentioned that the triangles have to be drawn using vertices only..also the question does not mention what type of triangles...

if thats indeed what the question means, i would say infinite triangles.

I tried to say the same; 2 is simply the most logical answer here (IMO).

my mistake: i should have mentioned triangles with vertices same as that of hexagon. But once this is mentioned i dont think it really matters what type of triangle. One can draw only 2 such triangles.
thanks

Just draw a hexagon and try to draw triangles such that only no sides are coincident. U can get only two triangles connecting (1,3,5) & (2,4,6) vertices.
right..?
