Since 5 points are collinear so they can not form any other geometry else than straight line. So they can not form a quadrilateral.

And total number of quadrilaterals possible with 12 points are 12C4. And By 5 collinear points 5C4 quad. can be formed. 

So total number of quadrilaterals possible are 12C4 - 5C4.

12c4-5c4-5c37c1    (there 12c4 ways to select any number of quadrilaterals, we have to subtract 5c4 because this is the number ways in which 4 collinear points can be selected and hence won't form a quadrilateral adn we have to subtract 5c37c1 because this is the number of ways in which 3 collinear points will be selected and hence quadrilateral won't be formed)
