A hexagon has 6 vertices.
Since no three points are in a line, we are basically looking for selecting 6 points out of 10..
10C6=\(\frac{10!}{6!4!}=\frac{10*9*8*7}{4*3*2}\)=310

D

Since the circle has 10 points on its edge and we need to create hexagons, each of which has 6 vertices, the number of ways to create those quadrilaterals using the 10 points is 10C6:

10!/[6!(10 - 6)!] = 10!/(6! x 4!) = (10 x 9 x 8 x 7)/4! = (10 x 9 x 8 x 7)/(4 x 3 x 2) = 10 x 3 x 7 = 210

Answer: D
