    Euclidean Geometry

    Consider the following interpretation of the undefined terms points, lines and incidence. Which axioms of incidence geometry are satisfied and which are not? Tell whether the interpretation has the elliptic, Euclidean, or hyperbolic parallel property.

    1. Fix a circle in the Euclidean plane. "Point" means a point inside the circle and "line" means a chord of the circle. "Incidence" means that the point lies on the chord.
