Discussion of Problem 1982. Electrification Plan

This is not an MST problem.
Posted by grinrag 8 Oct 2019 22:49
This is not an MST problem, because finally, we can have a graph with several connected components (not a tree). For example, if a city has a power station and the price to build a line to another city is too high we can just isolate this city. Such test:
4 2
1 4
0 1 1 7
1 0 5 2
1 5 0 2
7 2 2 0

The answer is 2.
We build line 1 <-> 2, 1 <-> 3. The total price is 2. It's not necessary to build any line to city 4.

I don't know, maybe there are no tests for such cases.
