Solution

Consider the 3 distinct points as P, Q and R.
Suppose the points P, Q and R are collinear.

So, only one line is determined by the points P, Q and R.
Suppose the points P,Q and R are non collinear.

So, three lines can be determined by the points P, Q and R.
Hence, the correct answer is one or three.
