Abstract. Let $Z\subset \mathbb {P}^r$, $r\ge 3$, be a curvilinear zero-dimensional scheme such that $\deg (Z)\le 4m+r-5$, $Z$ spans $\mathbb {P}^r$, $\deg (Z\cap M)<3m$ for each $3$-dimensional linear subspace $M\subseteq \mathbb {P}^r$ and $h^1(\mathcal {I}_Z(m))>0$. Then either there is a line $D$ with $\deg (D\cap Z)\ge m+2$ or there is a conic $T$ with $\deg (T\cap Z)\ge 2m+2$.
