Q.2

Show that if G = (V, E) is a complete bipartite graph with n vertices then the n2 total numbers of edges in G cannot exceed . 4

Ans.: Let Kp,q be a complete bipartite graph. The total no. of edges in K p,q is p.q and n total no. of vertices will be (p+q). If we take p = q = then in complete bipartite 2 n n n2 n . graph K n no. of edges will be which is maximum (If two numbers , 2 2 2 2 4 are equal then their product is maximum). Hence in a complete bipartite graph of n2 n vertices the no. of edges cannot exceed . 4 Q.3 Show that following two graphs are not isomorphic. V5 V1 V2 V3 G Ans.: In graph G and G we find that (i) (ii) (iii) No. of vertices in G = No. of vertices in G = 6. No. of edges in G = No. of edges in G = 5. No. of vertices of degree one in G and G = 3. No. of vertices of degree two in G and G = 2 No. of vertices of degree three in G and G = 1 i.e. Number of vertices of equal degree are equal. Although it satisfies all the three conditions but then also G and G are not isomorphic because corresponding to vertex V4 in G there should be a vertex U3 because in both G and G there is only one vertex of degree three. But two pendent V4 V6 G U1 U2 U6 U3 U4 U5

vertices V5 and V6 are incident on the vertex V4 in G whereas only one pendent vertex U6 is incident on the vertex U3 in G. Hence G and G are not isomorphic. Q.4 Define the followings :(i) Ans.: (i) Walk (ii) Trail (iii) Path (iv) Circuit (v) Cycle Walk : An alternating sequence of vertices and edges is called a Walk. It is denoted by W. Example : a e1 e6 e5 e Figure (1) Here W = ae1 b e2 c e3 d is a walk. Walk is of two types :(a) Open Walk : If the end vertices of a walk are different then such a walk is called Open Walk. Example from fig.(1) : W = a e1 b e2 c e3 d is an open walk. (b) Closed Walk : If a walk starts and end with same vertex then such a walk is called closed walk. Example from fig.(1) : W = a e6 e e5 b e1 a is a closed walk as it starts and end with same vertex a. (ii) Trail : An open walk in a graph G in which no edge is repeated is called a Trail. Example from fig.(1) : (iii) W = a e1 b e2 c e3 d is a trail. Path : An open walk in which no vertex is repeated except the initial and terminal vertex is called a Path. b e2 c e4 e3 d

Example for fig.(1) : W = a e1 b e4 d e3 c is a path. (iv) (v) Circuit : A closed trail is called a Circuit. Example for fig.(1) : W = a e1 b e5 e e6 a is a circuit. Cycle : A closed path is called a Cycle. Example for fig.(1) : W = a e1 b e5 e e6 a is a cycle. Q.5 Find the shortest path between the vertex a and z in the following graph. b 4 a 3 c

Hence shortest path is a c d e g z = 16 Q.6 Prove that K5 is non-planar. Ans.: Let the five vertices of K5 be V1, V2, V3, V4 and V5. Since K5 is a complete graph so every vertex of K5 is joined to every other vertex by means of an edge. Therefore

we must have a circuit going from V1 to V2, to V3, to V4, to V5 and to V1 i.e. a pentagon. V2 V1 V3 V1 V2 V3

Since vertex V1 is to be connected to V3 by means of an edge, this edge may be drawn inside or outside the pentagon (without intersecting the five edges drawn previously). Suppose we draw a line from V1 to V3 inside the pentagon. Now we have to drawn an edge from V2 to V4 and another one from V2 to V5. Since

neither of these edges can be drawn inside the pentagon without crossing over the already drawn edge. We draw both these edges outside the pentagon. Now the edge from V3 to V5 cannot be drawn outside the pentagon without crossing the edge between V2 to V4. Therefore V3 and V5 have to be connected with an edge inside the pentagon. Now we have yet to draw an edge between V1 and V4. This edge cannot be placed inside or outside the pentagon without a crossover. Hence K 5 is not a planar graph. Q.7 State and prove Handshaking Theorem.

Ans.: Handshaking Theorem : The sum of degrees of all the vertices in a graph G is equal to twice the number of edges in the graph. Mathematically it can be stated as :
deg(v)
v V

2e

Proof : Let G = (V, E) be a graph where V = {v1, v2, . . . . . . . . . .} be the set of vertices and E = {e1, e2, . . . . . . . . . .} be the set of edges. We know that every edge lies between two vertices so it provides degree one to each vertex. Hence each edge contributes degree two for the graph. So sum of degrees of all vertices is equal to twice the number of edges in G. Hence
v V

deg(v)

Q.8

Explain Matrix Representation of Graphs.

Ans.: Although a pictorial representation of a graph is very convenient for a visual study, other representations are better for computer processing. A matrix is convenient and useful way of the representation of a graph to a computer for a graph. There are different types of matrices : (i) (ii) (iii) Incidence Matrix Circuit Matrix Adjacency Matrix

(iv)

Path Matrix etc.

Q.9 How many edges are there with 7 vertices each of degree 4? Ans.: In graph G, there are 7 vertices and degree of each vertex is 4. So sum of the degrees of all the vertices of graph G = 7 x 4 = 28. According to Handshaking Theorem
deg(v)
v V

2e

28 = 2e e = 14

So, total no. of edges in G = 14. Q.10 Define Regular and Complete Graph. Ans.: Regular Graph : A simple graph G = (V, E) is called a Regular Graph if degree of each of its vertices are equal. Examples : 1V1 V2 Here degree of each vertex is one. So it is regular graph.

2V1 3V4 V1

V3 V2 V3 V2

Degree of each vertex is two.

Degree of each vertex is two.

Trees
Q.1 Define a Tree. Prove that there is one path between every pair of distinct vertices in a Tree T.

Ans.: Tree : A Tree is a connected graph without any circuit i.e Tree is a simple graph.

Trees with one, two, three, and four vertices. Proof : Since T is a connected graph. Let a and b be any two vertices of T. If it is possible let there are two different paths between the vertices a and b. P = a u1, u2, . . . . . . . . . . um b and Q = a v1, v2, . . . . . . . . . . vn b are those two different paths between a and b. In both these paths vertices after a can be common also. Let w be the first common vertex then for any i and j W = ui = v j Where i = 1, 2, . . . . . . . . . . m j = 1, 2, . . . . . . . . . . n Then we get a cycle a u1, u2, . . . . . . . . . . ui-1 , ui , vj-1 , vj-2 , . . . . . . . . . . v2, v1 a

which contradicts our assumption that T is a Tree. Hence there is only one path between a and b.

Q.2

A Tree with n-vertices has (n-1) edges.

Ans.: Let T be a tree having n vertices. We shall prove the theorem by mathematical induction. If n=1 then T contains only one vertex and 1-1=0 edges. Hence the theorem is true for n=1. Let it be true for k vertices. Now we shall prove it for (k+1) vertices. Since T is a connected graph so let P be a path of maximum length in T. P cannot be a circuit. Hence P contains atleast one vertex of degree one. Let this vertex be v. Now this vertex v and edge incident on it are eliminated from T so that we obtain a new tree T* which contains k vertices. According to our assumption T* contains (k-1) edges. Now if in T* the vertex v and edge is again included we again get T in which no. of edges are k. Hence the theorem is true for (k+1) vertices also. Thus by mathematical induction theorem is true for all n N. Hence proved. Q.3 If G is an acyclic graph with n vertices and k connected components then G has (n-k) edges.

Ans.: Proof : Let G be an acyclic graph. Let G1, G2, . . . . . . . . . . GK be its k connected components. For every i (1 i k ) ith component Gi has ni vertices then clearly n1 + n2 + n3 +. . . . . . . . . .+ nK = n Again since every Gi is a tree. Hence no. of edges in every Gi will be (ni-1) so total no. of edges in G = (n1 1) + (n2 1) + . . . . . . . . . . + (nk 1) = (n1 + n2 + . . . . . . . . . . + nk) k =nk Hence proved. Q.4 Find eccentricity, centre radius and diameter of the following graph. Eccentricity : V1 V2 Ans.: (i)

E(V1) = 2 E(V2) = 2 E(V3) = 1 E(V4) = 2 (ii) minimum eccentricity. (iii) (iv) Radius : Radius (eccentricity of the centre) = 1 Diameter : Maximum eccentricity = 2 Diameter of the given graph = 2 V4 Centre : Centre of the given graph is the vertex V3 because it has V3

Q.5 Ans.:

Prove that every tree has either one or two centres. Let T be a tree if T contains only one vertex then this vertex will be centre of T. If T contains two vertices then both vertices are centre of T. Now let T contains more than two vertices. The maximum distance max.d (v, vi) from a given vertex v to any other vertex vi occurs only when vi is a pendent vertex. Tree T must have two or more pendent vertices. Delete all pendent vertices form T. The resulting graph T is still a tree in which the eccentricity of all vertices is reduced by 1. Hence the centre of T will also be centre of T. From T, we can again remove all pendent vertices and we get another tree T. We continue this process until we are left with a vertex or an edge. If a vertex is left then this vertex is the centre and if an edge is left then both its end vertices are centre of T. Example : e(6) d(5) f(6) g(6) h(6)

Q.10 In any tree with 2 or more vertices there are atleast two pendent vertices. Ans.: Let T be a tree with n vertices and (n-1) edges. Since all the edges are connected with 2 vertices at a time. Hence the sum of the degree of all the vertices is = 2 x (no. of edges) = 2 x (n - 1) = 2n 2 Now, we have to prove that in tree T there are atleast two vertices of degree one and rest of vertices are of degree two or higher. Since no vertex in T has zero degree so let us assume that there is only one vertex of degree one and rest (n-1) vertices are of degree two or higher. Then the sum of the degrees of vertices is 1 + 2(n 1) = 2n 1 which is contradiction of (2n 2). Hence there is another vertex of degree one. If we take two vertices of degree 1 and remaining (n - 2) vertices of degree 2 or more than two then sum of the degrees of vertices = 2 + 2(n 2) = 2n 2 which is correct. Hence proved.

Ans.: (i)

ab ba
(a, b) R (b, a) (by commutativity of multiplication on N) Thus (a, b) R (b, a) for all (a, b) NxN . So, R is reflexive. (ii) Symmetry : Let (a, b), (c, d) (a, b) R (c, d) N x N be such that (a, b) R (c, d), then

Since A1 A2 A3 = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7}

So sets A1 , A2 , A3 do not form a partition of A. (ii) Since B1 B2 B3 = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7} =A and B1 , B2 , B3 are disjoint sets. Hence B1 , B2 , B3 form a partition of A. Q.6 If R and S are two equivalence relations on a set A, then prove that R S is an equivalence relation.

Ans.: The identity function IA : AA is defined as

Ans.: Injectivity : We know that f(0) = Cos 0 = 1 and f(2 ) = Cos 2 Hence f is not an injective.

So different elements in R may have the same image. Surjectivity : Since the value of Cos x lie between -1 and 1, it follows that the range of f(x) is not equal to its co-domain so f is not surjection.

So different elements in R may have the same image. Hence f is not an injection. (iii) Surjectivity : Since x = x and

x =x

So all negative and positive elements are mapped to positive element. Hence it follows that range of f(x) is not equal to its codomain. So f is not bijection.

Keyterms
EBCDIC:- extended binary coded decimal interchange code BCD:- binary coded Deccimal ASCII: american standard code for information interchange A circuit is a trail that begins and ends on the same vertex. A cycle is a path that begins and ends on the same vertex. A trail is a walk that does not pass over the same edge twice. A trail might visit the same vertex twice, but only if it comes and goes from a different edge each time.

A path is a walk that does not include any vertex twice, except that its first vertex might be the same as its last. a graph consists of a finite nonempty set. whose elements are the vertices (or nodes) of the graph, together with a (possibly empty) set of unordered pairs of distinct vertices called edges (or arcs). (A single one of the vertices is called a vertex.) Graphs:Graphs that have arrows added to each edge are called directed graphs or digraphs (pronounced "DYE-graphs"). The arrows show that the edge has a direction associated with it. Forest:A forest is a graph with no cycles. It may or may not be connected. So a single tree is a forest, and a forest consists of one or more trees Kuratowski's theorem:Kuratowski's theorem is the statement that a graph is planar if and only if it has no subgraph that can be "collapsed" to the complete graph K(5) or the bipartite graph K(3, 3) Function:A function from set S to set T is a set of ordered pairs, the first element of which is in S and the second of which is in T, such that no first element occurs in pairs with two different second elements.
