I am stuck on this spoj problem. I am not able to figure out how to convert this question in to graph data (adjacency list)?

Thanks in advance

this is standard 2-sat problem. You are supposed to make graph containing 2 vertices for the truth of each statement(eg-1 and~1) then check if they belong to same connected component or not. because if they do then its impossible.else possible.

*strongly connected component i meant to say.

check this video to be completely clear

also you might want to study Kosaraju’s algorithm first.

Goodluck Gilfoyle!

Thanks karthikay. That video was very helpful.
