1042. Flower Planting With No Adjacent

You have N gardens, labelled 1 to N. In each garden, you want to plant one of 4 types of flowers.

paths[i] = [x, y] describes the existence of a bidirectional path from garden x to garden y.

Also, there is no garden that has more than 3 paths coming into or leaving it.

Your task is to choose a flower type for each garden such that, for any two gardens connected by a path, they have different types of flowers.

Return any such a choice as an array answer, where answer[i] is the type of flower planted in the (i+1)-th garden. The flower types are denoted 1, 2, 3, or 4. It is guaranteed an answer exists.

Example 1:

Example 2:

Example 3:

Note:

  • 1 <= N <= 10000
  • 0 <= paths.size <= 20000
  • No garden has 4 or more paths coming into or leaving it.
  • It is guaranteed an answer exists.

Logic:

create an empty res list, a graph list, and a neighbor_colors list.

This is the graph problem. I am not very familiar with this.

Solution:
