The first arrangement is a smooth quadric Q with n tangent lines to Q, and the second one is a quadric Q with n lines passing through a point p is not an element of Q. The last arrangement consists of a quadric Q with n lines passing through a point p is an element of Q. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
