Question

There are n points in a plane of which no three are in a straight line except ‘m’ which are all in a straight line. Then the number of different quadrilaterals, that can be formed with the given points as vertices, is :

Solution

Correct option is

No. of different quadrilaterals

≡ [No. of ways to select 4 points] – [No. of ways in which 3 points on the line and one not on the line] – [No. of ways in which all the 4 points on the line]
