Consider $f(N) = g(N) + h(N)$ Where function $g$ is a measure of the cost of getting from the start node to the current node. $N$ and $h$ is an estimate of the additional cost of getting from the current node $N$ to the goal node. Then $f(N) = h(N)$ is used in which one of the following algorithms?

1. $A^{*}$algorithm
2. $AO^{*}$ algorithm
3. Greedy best first search algorithm
4. Iterative $A^{*}$ algorithm

the given eqn
f(N)=g(N)+h(N)  belongs to A* algorithm(variant of Best First) in which g(N) i.e the cost of reaching to current node from start node is also considered in addition of h(N). In original greedy best first algorithm only h(N) i.e cost of going from current  node to goal node is considered(thats why it is greedy just find the  cost to reach the goal node which may not be optimal)

so f(N)=h(N) belongs to greedy best first algorithm hence ans is C
