Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let the degree of a computer denote the number of other computers to which that computer is directly connected. The degree of any computer can be at most 5, since there are only 6 computers in total. Therefore, if each computer had a different degree, one would have degree 5, the next one 4, and so on. The last computer would have degree 0. However, this was excluded by the question.
