Reconstruct a diagram where 10 straight lines, of finite length, form 12 intersections, viz:
Intersections      by
   formed        Lines
    7              2
    4              3
    1              4

Question Looked at solution, still confused (no spoiler) | Comment 5 of 8 |
Not being able to figure out what was being asked, I looked at the solution in queue.  Assuming I am correctly picturing the solution, and assuming I am counting intersections properly, I get a different set of data:

Intersections      by
   formed         Lines
     2                  2
     0                  3
    10                 4

So now I assume that one or more of my assumptions is wrong
