The figure below shows a partially completed construction of an acute scalene triangle. Points P and Q represent two vertices of the triangle.
Where should the point for the third vertex lie?

between Q and L and on the arc between Q and M and on the arc between O and L and beyond the arc between O and M and beyond the arc

hmm, ok so scaline means no equal sides, no equal angles.

acute means all angles are less than 90 degrees

so if it's between Q and L on the arc, then the angle made by the center vertex will be way over 90 degrees, so it can't be that one

I think if it's between O and L and beyond the arc (namely, beyond the arc but well before P

the third choice I think  it's the only one that allows all of the angles to be small once you connect the vertices (less than 90 degrees)
