Decomposition of complete graph into cycles through all vertices.
Continuing explanation [here][1],
Next explanation is given as

for $n=5$ , $n=7$, it suffices to use cycles formed by traversing the
vertices with constant difference:$\left(0,1,2,3,4\right)$,$\left(0,2,4,1,3\right)$ for $n=5 $

and

$\left(0,1,2,3,4,5,6\right)$,$\left(0,3,6,2,5,1,4\right)$ for $n=7 $

Not getting how
$\left(0,1,2,3,4\right)$,$\left(0,2,4,1,3\right)$  and  $\left(0,1,2,3,4,5,6\right)$,$\left(0,3,6,2,5,1,4\right)$ is coming from !!!!!

Please help me out!!

The link that you have provided gives number of cycles in graph. But, in the example that you have given has some pattern.
but it is coming cycle rt?

Draw a complete graph with 5 vertices . (0,1,2,3,4) ,(0,2,4,1,3) both forming cycles
Yes, but answer would be different
