(A) All three vertices of a triangle could lie on a circle (inscribed triangle).
(C) All four vertices of a rectangle could lie on a circle (inscribed rectangle).
(D) Two triangles could intersect like a star (so more than two intersection points)
(E) A line could be the same line as one side of the triangle and thus this line and triangle could intersect in infinite points.

But in case of (B) A line and a circle could never intersect in more than two points. If its a secant, it can cut circle in two points only, or it could be a tangent and touch the circle only at one point. Of course, there could be 0 points of intersection also.

Hence B answer
