Find a tree with the given values and print the edges of the tree. Print “-1”, if the tree is not possible.
Given three integers n, d and h.
n -> Number of vertices. [1, n] d -> Diameter of the tree (largest distance between two vertices). h -> Height of the tree (longest distance between vertex 1 and another vertex)
Input : n = 5, d = 3, h = 2 Output : 1 2 2 3 1 4 1 5 Explanation : We can see that the height of the tree is 2 (1 -> 2 --> 5) and diameter is 3 ( 3 -> 2 -> 1 -> 5). So our conditions are satisfied. Input : n = 8, d = 4, h = 2 Output : 1 2 2 3 1 4 4 5 1 6 1 7 1 8 Explanation :
- Observe that when d = 1, we cannot construct a tree (if tree has more than 2 vertices). Also when d > 2*h, we cannot construct a tree.
- As we know that height is the longest path from vertex 1 to another vertex. So build that path from vertex 1 by adding edges up to h. Now, if d > h, we should add another path to satisfy diameter from vertex 1, with a length of d – h.
- Our conditions for height and diameter are satisfied. But still some vertices may be left. Add the remaining vertices at any vertex other than the end points. This step will not alter our diameter and height. Chose vertex 1 to add the remaining vertices (you can chose any).
- But when d == h, choose vertex 2 to add the remaining vertices.
