    Answer: They cannot meet because two skew lines do not intersect each other.

    Explanation:

    Skew lines is a concept used in geometry to define lines that do not intersect each other but are not parallel.

    In this case, the lines are not parallel because they lie in different planes, which in turn, do not intersect each other.

    Therefore, runing the lnes in different planes and in different directions, they cannot not, in spite of not being parallel, intersect each other, which is called that the lines are skewed.

    Donna's and Charlie's paths are an exelent illustration of what skew lines are: since Donna's and Charlie are in different levels, as long as each remains in parallel levels, their paths wiil not meet each other.
