Data Structures | Graph | Question 6

How many undirected graphs (not necessarily connected) can be constructed out of a given set V= {V 1, V 2,…V n} of n vertices ?
(A) n(n-l)/2
(B) 2^n
(C) n!
(D) 2^(n(n-1)/2)


Answer: (D)

Explanation: In an undirected graph, there can be maximum n(n-1)/2 edges. We can choose to have (or not have) any of the n(n-1)/2 edges. So, total number of undirected graphs with n vertices is 2^(n(n-1)/2).
