Which one of the following is not an informed search technique?

1. Hill climbing search
2. Best first search
3. A* search
4. Depth first search

recategorized

Hill Climbing : It is an iterative algorithm that starts with an arbitrary solution to a problem, then attempts to find a better solution by incrementally changing a single element of the solution. If the change produces a better solution, an incremental change is made to the new solution, repeating until no further improvements can be found.

first three are informed search or heuristics search(with some kind of guide or information. situation is just like u go for visit to a historical place with a guide he will take u to the main points and leaving unimportant points    without guide u will probably search each and every point as u don t have information in advance)

Best first is greedy algo can move either BFS or DFS so also known as OR search. A* is a variation of BFS . Hill climbing is also greedy algo look for local max or min soln while it may not be  global soln

so clearly ans is D   DFS as its move blindly in depth wise direction while soln may be at somewhere else

Uninformed search  is an Exhaustive search using brute force methods: search all possible paths

Other options are informed search.

informed search used Heuristic approaches (choose path likely to give solution)
