Hello, someone could help me to solve this?

Let $r_1, r_2, r_3, r_4$ be four lines of $\mathbb{P^2}=P\mathbb{R^3}$ (projective space). Show that these two conditions are equivalent:

i) There exist a unique projectivity $\varphi$ of $\mathbb{P^2}$ whereby the four lines are invariants, but not necessarly composed by fixed points of $\varphi$.

ii) Each set of three of the four lines has empty intersection.

Eventually, generalize the proposition for n-dimension projective spaces.

Thank you
