Lines \(l_m\) and \(l_n\) lie in the plane x and intersect one another on the perpendicular at point P. Which of the following statements must be true?

(A) A line which lies in plane x and intersects line \(l_m\) on the perpendicular at a point other than P does not intersect \(l_n\).

(B) Line segment MN, which does not intersect \(l_m\), does not intersect \(l_n\).

(C) If line \(l_o\) lies in plane y and intersects \(l_m\) at point P, plane y is perpendicular to plane x.

(D) A circle that lies in plane x and has two points in common with \(l_m\) also has two points in common with \(l_n\).

(E) A circle that has exactly one point in common with \(l_m\) and one point in common with \(l_n\) also lies in plane x.

Lines \(l_m\) and \(l_n\) are at perpendicular..
so any line perpendicular to any of the lines will be PARALLEL to the second line and will NOT meet that line..
see attached figure ..
let Lo be the line perpendicular to Lm

this is exactly what A says
