Recall the three common scenarios in which it is not possible to have a Hamilton between two vertices.
Scenario 1: If an edge ab is a bridge, then there is no Hamilton path between a pair of vertices that are on the same side of edge ab.
Scenario 2: If an edge ab is a bridge with at least three components on each side, then there is no Hamilton path beginning or ending at a or b.
Scenario 3: If a graph is composrd of two cycles joined only at a single vertex p, and v is any vertex that is not adjacent to p, then there are no Hamilton paths beginning or ending at p.
For the following exercises, identify the scenario that guarantees there is no Hamilton path between the given pair of vertices in the given graph. 61 .

The products at a particular factory are manufactured in phases. The same equipment is utilized for each phase, but it must be formatted differently to accomplish different tasks. The transition time to convert between a format for one task and another task varies. The times are given in the table below.

Task A B C D E F G
A $0$ $75$ $130$ $45$ $120$ $70$ $100$
B $75$ $0$ $140$ $65$ $115$ $25$ $60$
C $130$ $140$ $0$ $35$ $55$ $20$ $125$
D $45$ $65$ $35$ $0$ $50$ $30$ $40$
E $120$ $115$ $55$ $50$ $0$ $95$ $145$
F $70$ $25$ $20$ $30$ $95$ $0$ $15$
G $100$ $60$ $125$ $40$ $145$ $15$ $0$
Use the table to draw a graph in which the vertices represent tasks A, C, D, F, and G, and the weights of the edges indicate the times in minutes to transition between pairs of tasks. Use the nearest neighbor method to find an order in which to complete tasks A, C, D, F, and G, which keeps the transition times down and ends with the same set up as it began so that the factory is ready start the next batch. Assume that there are no restrictions on which tasks can be completed in which order. Hint: The nearest neighbor algorithm may give a different result depending on which vertex is the starting vertex; so, you must check all possibilities.
