Graph Quizzes & Trivia

How knowledgeable are you about graphs? This quiz will reveal your graph IQ. In mathematics, and more explicitly in graph theory, a graph is a structure that amounts to a set of objects that are, in some sense, “related. ” The objects correspond to mathematical abstractions known as vertices, and each of the related pairs of vertices is called an edge. If you understand this complex subject, then you will benefit from taking this quiz.
