a. Backtracking
b. Greedy
c. Dynamic programming
d. Divide

The Bellman-Ford algorithm is used to find all the pairs of shortest distances in a graph.

2)   Algorithms: Consider a B-tree of order 4 and is built from scratch by 10 successive insertions. What would be the maximum number of node splitting operations that take place?

a. 6
b. 3
c. 4
d. 2
Answer  Explanation 


A B-tree of order m contains n records and each contains b records on average then the tree will have about n/b leaves. If we split k nodes along the path from leaves then
k<=1+logm/2 [n/b]
here n=10,b=3,m=4 so
k<=1+log4/2 [n/b]
k<=1+log2 4
k<= 1+2

3)   Algorithms: What will be the Huffman code for the letters a,b,c,d,e?

a. 0,10,110,1110,1111
b. 10,011,11,001,010
c. 10,01,0001,100,1010
d. 100,110,001,000,010
Answer  Explanation 

ANSWER: 0,10,110,1110,1111

The probability are ½,1/4, 1/8,1/16,,1/32
So, the Huffman code according to the tree is unique.
