Hello Everyone, I am new here and I want to know which data structures are used for BFS and DFS? In my last interview, I have faced this question but I didn’t know those answers. Can anyone knows and help me out or suggest some data structure based interview questions as a beginner point.

Hey @ankitdixit! Welcome to the community!

This forum is dedicated to blockchain topics. You’d be better of looking at websites like stackoverflow for general CS help.

Going back to your question BFS uses Queue there DFS uses Stack. Hope it helps!

Hi @ankitdixit,

Welcome to the community

Was this for a blockchain developer role?

I didn’t know what the terms were: Breadth first search (BFS) and depth first search (DFS)

Were you looking for data structures in Solidity?

I Totally, Agree with your points, Yes this question is valid for those data science forums where you can get the perfect answers, I am a developer as well, but as you asked, So here sharing with your answer of the difference between BFS and DFS.

For Data Science Interview Questions, I am going to list out questions which are asked in the interviews:

- Question: What do you understand by a data structure?
- Question: How does a linear data structure differ from a non-linear data structure?
- Question: Please enumerate the various operations that can be performed on a data structure.
- Question: Can you tell which data structures are used for BFS and DFS of a graph?
- Question: Please explain stack and also mention some of its important applications.
- Question: What is a queue? How is it different from a stack?

Hi @Rohan_Joshi,

Welcome to the community

Thanks for providing an answer on BFS and DFS. Also nice plug for your blog
