#### Work Step by Step

ii. The described graph is not a tree.
A tree is a graph that is connected and has no circuits. A graph is connected when there is a path between every pair of vertices.
One characteristic of a tree is the following: If the graph has $n$ vertices, then the graph has $n-1$ edges. This graph has 8 vertices but it has only 5 edges. Therefore, this graph is not a tree.
