Statement B and statement D are correct statements, so they can never be answered.  Statement C is also an accurate statement, as parallel lines can not intersect and any two parallel lines decide a plane. [Rule for defining planes]  So, Statement A is the only wrong statement in above options.  Not only planar but, any two intersecting lines also decide a plane.  That means intersecting lines can also be in one plane.  Answer: Statement A is NOT TRUE in above statements.
