Abstract: A particular case of the results proved here is that a general set of d points in $ {{\mathbf{P}}^{r - 1}}(k)$ is not the hyperplane section of a linearly normal, locally complete intersection curve in $ {{\mathbf{P}}^r}(k)$ if $ r \geq 6,d \geq \max (15,r + 3)$, and the characteristic of k is zero.
