B is answer. Go onece for dynamic approch . 

Short cut Go with End vertex to start vertex with minmum cost every time .

You get B as answer.

or try all options
A and B seems to be having smae cost, so is one preferable to another?
BUT WHAT IS THE EDGE WEIGHT OF EDGE 5-8

seen none are asking about it .Isnt that important?
Bt removing edge 5-8

and applying D.A.

1-2-4-8-9

cost=15

Option B

Multi stage graph if we follow greedy strategy answer will not always be optimum . Dynamic Approch is prefered here .


Like @anirudh said  for short-cut

Start  with End vertex and traverse to  start vertex with minmum cost every time


For General Approch . Watch this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5Y-4TsXsJ0)

 

Good Read

Apply Dijkstra Algorithm answer  will be B.if u apply hit and trial method u may get correct answer but the approach is wrong

In this A and B both are havinng same cost, but if we follow greedy approach it will not give A as answer as till it ll not get less cost it will use previous only and from dynamic both answers are correct so B should be the answer.

In multistage we start from end vertex not from starting vertex if we start from starting vertex then A should be the answer but according to  multistage algo B should be the answer.

When I am calculating, the answer is turning out to be

1-->2-->4-->8-->9

Sum= 14

Shouldn't this be the accurate answer?
