252 Solutions to Exercises 13. [BB] Consider the graph in which the vertices correspond to the people at the party and an edge between vertices indicates that the corresponding people shook hands. The degree of a vertex in this graph is the number of hands that person shook. The result is an immediate consequence of Corollary 9.2.6. 14. Only graphs (ii), (iv) and (v) are subgraphs of the graph in Fig. 9.21, as shown. 15. Yes for (a) [BB] and (c), as indicated. A B1~r D 1 4 D 8 5 (ii) (c) 1 4 1 4
