  1. a) Point lights

Point lights do not have target object. We use point lights for general shining effects. Point light can be created by entering Pointlight command.

You create the target point light by Targetpoint command. The difference between the target point light and the point light is adding the target property. The target point light can show an object. The target point light can be created from the target light by changing Targeted property of point light from No to Yes.

When shining by Standard lighting workflow, Pointlight can be set up by hand so that its light intensity reduces following to distance of length, depending on the quadratic inverse ratio of distance or zero. As default, the reducing of light intensity is set up None.

Good luck!
