A* is optimal if h(n) is an admissible heuristic-that is, provided that h(n) never undervalues the cost to reach the goal.

(A). True

(B). False

(C). Partially true

MCQ Answer: a

Best-First search can be coded with the help of which of the following data structure.

(A). Queue

(B). Stack

(C). Priority Queue

(D). Circular Queue

(E). None of these

MCQ Answer: c

The name “best-first search” is a good algorithm but an inaccurate one. After all, if we could actually enlarge the best node first, it would not be a search at all; it would be a straight march to the goal. All we can do is to select the node that seems to be best according to the evaluation function.

(A). True

(B). False

(C). Partially true

MCQ Answer: a

A* algorithm is based on which of the following?

Uninformed search strategies are healthier than informed search strategies.

(A). True

(B). False

(C). Partially true

MCQ Answer: a

Greedy search strategy chooses the node for expansion in which of the following?

(A). Shallowest

(B). Deepest

(C). The one closest to the goal node

(D). Minimum heuristic cost

(E). None of these

MCQ Answer: c
