design algorithm

Consider the following problem: Design an algorithm to determine the best route for a subway passenger to take from one designated station to another in a typical urban subway system similar to those in San Francisco and New York.

 

  1. The problem’s statement is vague, which is typical of real-life problems.  In particular, what reasonable criterion can be used for defining the “best” route?

  2. Based upon part (a), how would you model this problem by a graph?
