# Check if there exists a connected graph that satisfies the given conditions

Given two integers N and K. The task is to find a connected graph with N vertices such that there are exactly K pairs (i, j) where the shortest distance between them is 2. If no such graph exists then print -1. Note:

1. The first-line output should be the number of edges(say m) in the graph and the next m lines should contain two numbers represents the edge between the vertices.
2. In case of multiple answers print any of them.

Examples:

Input: N = 5, K = 3 Output: 7 1 2 1 3 1 4 1 5 3 4 3 5 4 5 Input: N = 5, K = 8 Output: -1

Approach: An N-vertices connected graph has at least N-1 edges. The shortest distance of each pair is equal to 1. So obviously, it is clear that there doesn’t exist a solution if K > N * (N – 1) / 2 – (N – 1) = (N – 1) * (N – 2) / 2. Conversely, it can be shown that there exists a solution if K ? (N – 1) * (N – 2) / 2 by constructing a graph that satisfies the condition. First, let’s consider the graph where each vertex is connected with all the other vertices then the shortest between any two vertices is 1. Now remove any K edges then there exist exactly K such pairs. Below is the implementation of the above approach:
