I think it's actually 3. There's two from the outside to the middle one, and a third connecting the two outside points. |dw:1435808075239:dw|

yes but its distinct is it not, so the distinct ones would be 2? I think were all overthinking it and it is two

Possibly. Distinct could mean that they don't overlap, or just a way of saying "how many different line segments can you make." I'm not sure but I would rather guess 3 here.
