Here we have to use brut force method becoz no algo availabke here .just one thing u have to follow that " no adjacent vertex shoukd be of same color"

Follow this approach u will get correct ans .

For 1 option we need  4 colors

For 2 option we need 3 colors

Chromatic Number:- Minimum number of color needed to mark every vertices of a graph ,but no two adjacent vertices can have same color

QUESTION :1

Let B be RED

then  W be Blue    G can not be red or blue as then it will be two same color connecting let G YELLOW

R can be BLUE as it is connected with  B and G which has no Blue Color(We could have marked with anyother color ,but we need minimum color number)

Right hand @W can again be YELLOW

Inthis way you can progress

Now for first image, minimum number of independent sets cover entire graph are 4. They are {a,d},{b,c},{g,f},{e,h}. So we need minimum of 4 colours to colour the graph.

For 2nd image, minimum number of independent sets that cover entire graph are 3. They are {a,d,f,h},{b,c,e,i},{g}. So we need minimum of 3 colours to colour the graph.
