Algorithms | Graph Shortest Paths | Question 4

In an unweighted, undirected connected graph, the shortest path from a node S to every other node is computed most efficiently, in terms of time complexity by
(A) Dijkstra’s algorithm starting from S.
(B) Warshall’s algorithm
(C) Performing a DFS starting from S.
(D) Performing a BFS starting from S.


Answer: (D)

Explanation:

 * Time Comlexity of the Dijkstra’s algorithm is O(|V|^2 + E)  
 * Time Comlexity of the Warshall’s algorithm is O(|V|^3)
 * DFS cannot be used for finding shortest paths
 * BFS can be used for unweighted graphs. Time Complexity for BFS is O(|E| + |V|)
