  • The insect can go from A to B either in exactly 3 steps or in exactly 5 steps.
    No: of ways to go from A to B in exactly 3 steps = (3C1) * (2C1) = 6 ways.

    because at vertex A it has to choose 1 edge out of 3 which it will do in 3C1 ways. and at each vertex 1 or 3 or 5 it has to choose 1 edge out of 2 edges which it will do in 2C1 ways.

    No: of ways to go from A to B in exactly 5 steps = No: of ways to go from A to B in exactly 5 steps when no edge is traversed more than once + No: of ways to go from A to B in exactly 5 steps when one of the edge is traversed more than once.

    No: of ways to go from A to B in exactly 5 steps when no edge is traversed more than once = 6 ways.

    now lets find out the number of ways when insect goes from A - 1 - A, that is it has completed 2 steps and is back to A from which it has to reach B in remaining 3 steps which it can do in 6 ways.

    so when edge A-1 is repeated = 6 ways. when edge A3 is repeated = 6 ways, when edge A-5 is repeated = 6 ways.
    hence (6 + 6 + 6) = 18 ways
    now say the insect go from vertex A to any of the three vertex . lets say it goes from A to 1 here when edge 1-2 is repeated then insect has 2 ways and when 1-6 is repeated insect has 2 ways. so total 4 ways, hence 3C1*4 = 12 ways.

    one more case is there when insect travels from A-1-2-3-2-B third side is repeated here also 6 ways will be there.

    hence total number of ways = 6 + 6 + 18 + 12 + 6 = 48 ways
