GATE | GATE-CS-2014-(Set-3) | Question 48

Consider the decision problem 2CNFSAT defined as follows:


(A) NP-Complete.
(B) solvable in polynomial time by reduction to directed graph reachability.
(C) solvable in constant time since any input instance is satisfiable.
(D) NP-hard, but not NP-complete.

Answer: (B)

Explanation: 2CNF-SAT can be reduced to strongly connected components problem. And strongly connected component has a polynomial time solution. Therefore 2CNF-SAT is polynomial time solvable. See for details.

As a side note, 3CNFSAT is NP Complete problem.
