Problem H4

Our definition requires that polygons divide the plane into an "interior" and an "exterior" region, which is not the case with a "flat" polygon. Also, the segment AB coincides with AC along its entire length; they do not just meet at an endpoint. (Likewise for BC and AC.)

Problem H5

Answers may vary, but one reason that "flat" polygons would not be considered "polygons" is that they would be indistinguishable from one another or from a line segment.
