Mr. X claims the following: If a relation R is both symmetric and transitive, then R is reflexive. For this, Mr. X offers the following proof: “From xRy, using symmetry we get yRx. Now because R is transitive xRy and yRx together imply xRx. Therefore, R is reflexive”. Give an example of a relation R which is symmetric and transitive but not reflexive.

Let $G$ be a connected, undirected graph. A cut in $G$ is a set of edges whose removal results in $G$ being broken into two or more components, which are not connected with each other. The size of a cut is called its cardinality. A mincut of $G$ is a cut in $G$ of ... $n$ vertices has a mincut of cardinality $k$, then $G$ has at least $\left(\frac{n\times k}{2}\right)$ edges.
