Why dijkastra provide wrong result for -ve edge. Because dijkastra supports increments of distance, when it goes from one vertex to other. In the middle if we get some -ve edge, this assumption will be violated. That is why dijkastra gives incorrect result for some cases.

Dijkastra doesnot check if there is a -ve edge or not. If it's assumtion is true, dijkastra even give correct result with -ve weight edges too.
