There are two types of professional wrestlers: babyfaces ( good guys ) and heels ( bad guys ). Between any pair of professional wrestlers, there may or may not be a rivalry. Suppose we have n professional wrestlers and we have a list of r pairs of ... that each rivalry is between a babyface and a heel. If it is possible to perform such a designation, your algorithm should produce it.

Give an example of a directed graph $G=(V, E)$, a source vertex $s\ \epsilon\ V$ , and a set of tree edges $E_{\Pi}\subseteq E$ such that for each vertex $v\ \epsilon\ V$ , the unique simple path in the graph $(V, E_{\Pi})$ from s to v is a shortest path in G, yet the set of edges $E_{\Pi}$ cannot be produced by running BFS on G, no matter how the vertices are ordered in each adjacency list.

I have trouble understanding the difference between DAG and Multi-stage graph. I know what each of them is But I think that a multi-stage graph is also a DAG. Are multi-stage graphs a special kind of DAG?

Suppose that instead of a linked list, each array entry $adj[u]$ is a hash table containing the vertices $v$ for which $(u,v) \in E$. If all edge lookups are equally likely, what is the expected time to determine whether an edge is in ... have ? Suggest an alternate data structure for each edge list that solves these problems. Does your alternative have disadvantages compared to the hash table ?

Most graph algorithms that take an adjacency-matrix representation as input require time $\Omega(V^2)$,but there are some exceptions. Show how to determine whether a directed graph $G$ contains a universal link $-$ a vertex with in-degree $|V-1|$ and out-degree $0$ in time $O(V)$ , given an adjacency matrix for $G$.

The transpose of a directed graph $G=(V,E)$ is the graph $G^T=(V,E^T)$, where $E^T=\{(v,u) \in V * V :(u,v) \in E \ \}$ .Thus ,$G^T$ is $G$ with all its edges reversed .

Let G be an arbitrary graph with n nodes and k components. If a vertex is removed from G, the number of components in the resultant graph must necessarily lie between (A) k and n (B) k – 1 and k + 1 (C) k – 1 and n – 1 (D) k + 1 and n – k The answer is C . how is it k-1?? I mean if we have only one component .?Please explain

FOR THE EXTENDED-SHORTEST-PATH if we want to find the distance between 1->4 and the 1->5 +5->4 gives the shortest path and if 1->5 gets its shortest path as 1->2->5 and 5>4 gets its shortest path as 5->3->4 then how will we get it?? as one of the operands is always from the initial array.

Which of the following statement is true? For a directed graph, the absence of back edges in a DFS tree can have cycle. If all edge in a graph have distinct weight then the shortest path between two vertices is unique. The depth of any DFS (Depth First Search) tree rooted at a vertex is atleast as depth of any BFS tree rooted at the same vertex. Both (a) and (c)

Can someone please explain what are the types of edges possible in BFS and DFS for DIRECTED as well as UNDIRECTED graphs? Individual meaning of BACK, FRONT and CROSS edges is clear, but can’t decide which are present and which are not for Traversals. an example would be of great help or any specific reference on this.
