PT07Z - Longest path in a tree

You are given an unweighted, undirected tree. Write a program to output the length of the longest path (from one node to another) in that tree. The length of a path in this case is number of edges we traverse from source to destination.


The first line of the input file contains one integer N --- number of nodes in the tree (0 < N <= 10000). Next N-1 lines contain N-1 edges of that tree --- Each line contains a pair (u, v) means there is an edge between node u and node v (1 <= u, v <= N).


Print the length of the longest path on one line.

did it with both bfs and dfs, try both :)

I got accepted with Adjacency Matrix in C++. bool graph[10001][10001] is okay as global variable.

learned bfs!!

simple bfs..

Longest path dosen't stand for the deepth of the tree. So naive was I :(

Do not use Adjacency Matrix ull get a tle, use Adjacency List.

f you! 5th test case.

one bfs to find the farthest node. second bfs to find the longest path. AC in one go!

how one knows which test case my solution fails
