    Can you provide more context of the question and your "definitions" of "line" and "curve"?
    Otherwise, the discussion isn't going to very precise... and you won't end up with a proof.

    O didn't know that u could call a line for a curve, even a line segment would be a curve so it don't need to be continuous ..

    I'm sure what you mean is that a curve and a straight line are different to you because, well, a straight line goes straight and a curve line changes directions. Put this into mathematical language!
