Looking at the figure,
the star is a pentagon and each side of the pentagon is the base of 5 triangles.
So we have a total of 5 trees on each of the vertices of the pentagon.
and one tree each on the 5 triangle's 3rd vertex as two vertices already have a tree.

Hence, we will be have a total of 5+5 = 10 trees(Option B)

Each lines intersects with other lines at 4 points.
there are a total of 10 intersection points
Hence 10 trees could be placed at these 10 points to satisfy the criteria.
Option B
