Question: A depth first forest classifies the edges of a graph into

A depth-first forest classifies the edges of a graph into tree, back, forward, and cross edges. A breadth-first tree can also be used to classify the edges reachable from the source of the search into the same four categories. a. Prove that in a breadth-first search of an undirected graph, the following properties hold:
1. There are no back edges and no forward edges.
2. For each tree edge (u, v), we have d[v] = d[u] + 1.
3. For each cross edge (u, v), we have d[v] = d[u] or d[v] = d[u] + 1.
b. Prove that in a breadth-first search of a directed graph, the following properties hold:
1. There are no forward edges.
2. For each tree edge (u, v), we have d[v] = d[u] + 1.
3. For each cross edge (u, v), we have d[v] ≤ d[u] + 1.
4. For each back edge (u, v), we have 0 ≤ d[v] ≤ d[u].
