Consider the following context free grammar:

$S \rightarrow ASA | aB$

$A \rightarrow B | S$

$B \rightarrow b | \epsilon$

How many productions will be there in the modified grammar if we remove null-productions and unit-productions from this grammar?

My Solution:
Step 1: Remove epsilon transitions
Nullable variables = $\big\{A,B\big\}$

Modified grammar after removal of null productions:
$S \rightarrow ASA | aB | a | AS | SA | S$
$A \rightarrow B | S$
$B \rightarrow b$

Step 2: Remove Unit Productions
$S \rightarrow ASA |aB |a | AS | SA | \mathbf{S}$
$A \rightarrow \mathbf {B} | \mathbf{S}$
$B \rightarrow b$

Modified grammar after the removal of the unit productions:
$S \rightarrow ASA |aB |a | AS | SA$
$A \rightarrow b | ASA |aB |a | AS | SA$
$B \rightarrow b$

I am getting 12 productions. can someone please confirm if it's correct?
