Challenge: Removing a Given Edge

Given a graph and an edge, check whether removing that edge creates components in the graph.

Problem statement

Implement a function that takes a source vertex and a destination vertex as arguments and checks whether deleting the corresponding edge creates separate components in the directed graph.


The inputs are a graph, a source (integer), and a destination (integer).


The output is true or false (a boolean variable), confirming whether separate components will be created or not.

Sample input

graph { 0 -> 1
        0 -> 2
        2 -> 3
        2 -> 4
        4 -> 0}

source = 0 destination = 1
