Problem A. 683. (December 2016)

A. 683. Let \(\displaystyle K=(V,E)\) be a finite, simple, complete graph. Let \(\displaystyle \phi\colon E\to\mathbb{R}^2\) be a map from the edge set to the plane, such that the preimage of any point in the range defines a connected graph on the entire vertex set \(\displaystyle V\), and the points assigned to the edges of any triangle are collinear. Show that the range of \(\displaystyle \phi\) is contained in a line.
