If it is asked for minimum states required in FA for some language, we can have both NFA and DFA, and NFA has lesser number of states but many books write that consider DFA as default. What to take into consideration in such case?NFA or DFA?

@Praveen sir, I have also seen many questions in booklets and  here in gateoverflow where the best answer calculates minimum states using DFA (instead of using NFA)

As per previous year solution of questions based on Minimal FA  they always considers DFA if nothing is specified.

I think, there will be 4 states in minimum DFA, following states will be merged in the resulted DFA {q0&q3}, {q4&q5}, {q1&q6}, {q2&q7}
