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)

Which one of the following statements (s) is/are FALSE? Overlaying is used to run a program, which is longer than the address space of the computer. Optimal binary search tree construction can be performed efficiently by using dynamic programming. Depth first search ... components of a graph. Given the prefix and postfix walls over a binary tree, the binary tree can be uniquely constructed.
