B. 4007. Let A, B, C, D denote four distinct points in the space. The line segment PQ is moved'' from AB to DC so that in each time instant P divides the line segment AD in the same ratio as Q divides BC. Then the line segment PQ sweeps out a surface. Prove that the same surface will be obtained if a line segment RS is moved in the same way from AD to BC.

B. 4011. Assoc City has 2007 inhabitants. They like joining clubs. The following two resolutions are passed to regulate club life: (1) every club must have exactly 101 members, and (2) no two clubs may have exactly the same set of members. In the senate of the city, each club is represented by a member, and it is against the law for two clubs to have the same representative. The committee of law are planning to impose a limitation on the number of clubs, so that however they are formed according to the rules above, it should always be possible to delegate representatives. What is the maximum number of clubs that may be allowed by the committee?
