Let G be the graph with 100 vertices numbered 1 to 100. Two vertices i and j are adjacent if |i−j|=8 or |i−j|=12. The number of connected components in G is

(A)

8

(B)

4

(C)

12

(D)

25



Answer: (B)

Explanation:

When vertices are arranged with difference of 12 the number of components is reduced to 4 as first column will be connected with fifth column, second column will be connected with sixth column, third column will be connected with seventh column and fourth column will be connected with eighth column. No other form of connection exists so total 4 connected components are there. 
So, option (B) is correct.
