8. Observe the picture and answer the following.

(i) Find all the possible routes from A to D.

Route 1 A → G → D

Route 2 A → B → D

Route 3 A → B → C → D

Route4 A → G → F → E → D

(ii) Find the shortest distance between E and C.

The shortest distance between E and C.

E → D → C = 120m + 200m = 320m

(iii) Find all the possible routes between B and F with distance. Mention the shortest route.

Route1   B → A → G → F

250+ 100 + 150 = 500 m

Route2    B → D → E → F

100+ 120 + 300 = 520 m

Route3   B → D → G → F

100 + 200+ 150 = 450 m

Route4   B → C → D → E → F

120 + 200 + 120 + 300 + 740 m

The shortest route is B → D → G → F = 450 m
