they are not linearly independent? and thus not a basis for such space

If your 6 basis vectors are not linearly independent, then they share...

What does it mean if the vectors are not linearly independent?

then they dont share common subspaces...

thanks a lot!

Notice that you did not use the fact that the two subspaces have no non-zero vector (you said "constant" but I presume you meant vector) in common. That's the important thing.
