Assignment structure
There are 11 questions. Topics are covered in weeks 7 – 10.
Question 1 (4 marks):
In each case below, either draw a tree or graph with the required properties or prove that it does
not exist.
(a) A tree on 8 vertices with degrees 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4.
(b) A tree on 6 vertices with degrees 1, 2, 3, 2, 2, 2.
(c) A connected graph on 5 vertices with degrees 2, 3, 3, 5, 5.
(d) A connected graph on 7 vertices with degrees 2, 2, 3, 4, 4, 4.
A graph can have multiple edges or loops.
(Explanation marks are for correct draw or correct explanation. If you can draw, you do not need
to explain. See Section 7.6 in Week 7 handout for examples and theory.)
Question 2 (2 marks):
State which of the following graphs are planar. For those which are planar, give a planar graph
drawing. For those which are not planar, explain why they are not. (For reference, see Section
7.5 and Week 7 practical exercises.)
