Let G = (V, E) be a weighted undirected graph and let T be a Minimum Spanning Tree (MST) of G maintained using adjacency lists. Suppose a new weighted edge (u, v) $$\in$$ V $$\times$$ V is added to G. The worst case time complexity of determining if T is still an MST of the resultant graph is
A
$$\Theta \left( {\left| E \right| + \left| V \right|} \right)$$
B
$$\Theta \left( {\left| E \right|\left| V \right|} \right)$$
C
$$\Theta \left( {\left| E \right|\log \left| V \right|} \right)$$
D
$$\Theta \left( {\left| V \right|} \right)$$

Consider a graph G = (V, E), where V = {v1, v2, ...., v100},
E = {(vi, vj) | 1 ≤ i < j ≤ 100}, and weight of the edge (vi, vj) is |i - j|. The weight of the minimum spanning tree of G is ______.

Consider the weights and values of items listed below. Note that there is only one unit of each item.

Item number Weight
(in Kgs)
Value
(in Rupees)
1 10 60
2 7 28
3 4 20
4 2 24

The task is to pick a subset of these items such that their total weight is no more than $$11$$ $$Kgs$$ and their total value is maximized. Moreover, no item may be split. The total value of items picked by an optimal algorithm is denoted by $$V$$opt. A greedy algorithm sorts the items by their value-to-weight ratios in descending order and packs them greedily, starting from the first item in the ordered list. The total value of items picked by the greedy algorithm is denoted by $$V$$greedy.

The value of $$V$$opt $$−$$ $$V$$greedy is ____________.
