### 11857 - Driving Range

I think this is simple DFS problem.
I called a dfs then check which road length is maximum
Is my approach is ok?

PLZ give me some critical input output....

Thanx for advance help Igor9669

I don't know why but I'm not able to understand those graph problems. Do you think i am the problem or problem description is not so good ? And can you give me some guide to improve the ability of understanding the problem.

### Re: 11857 - Driving Range

In my code I have used prims algorithm to find MST. and the edge with maximum length is the output. I am getting TLE..
I submitted my solution without calling the function to find MST (func name is dfs) still i got TLE.. so i think the problem is in variable declaration (for adjacency matrix) very unlikely though.... which i have implemented using array of vectors to make a 2D array..
the input range was 1 million. are there any other alternative of making an adjacency matrix.

### Re: 11857 - Driving Range

Now i got accepted but my runtime is 2.904 I use Kruskal + dfs.
can anyone give me any hints to decrease my runtime....

I used Disjoint Sets to solve the problem. My running time is 0.684 sec.

Hafiz in 67th line you used
if(u != v)
but it will be
if(x!=y)

### Re: 11857 - Driving Range

Sorry for Silly Post..I designed a way to solve this problem using DFS.But I dont know which data structure is to use for representing
the Graph.Because size is too much(1 million).I code in c/c++ but array,structure of c/c++ cant support this huge memory.So how to represent graph?  MRH

You can use adjacent list or structure ot STL container like as vector
