Consider the complete graph with 5 vertices, denoted by K5.

A. Draw the graph

The question I have when drawing this graph with 5 vertices and denote by K5, should I draw, medium, or large squares? Should I draw the graph vertically or horizontally or which would be easier when I have to make sure it has 5 vertices (denoted by K5)?

What you are required to do is simply draw a 'pentagon' with any two vetices connected by a 'line'. I do not understand what you mean by drawing $K_5$ vertically (or horizontally ). Can you please elaborate on this?

Caffeinemachine: In response to your questions, I am trying to see what exactly is easier when I draw this graph and to help me understand it as to me reading it. Are you stating that I am suppose to draw a pentagon? I ask this because the question doesn't specify or state that. It states the following:

A.) Consider the complete graph with 5 vertices, denoted by K5. Draw the graph.

When I mean by drawing K5 vertically or horizontally is would it be easier to see straight up and down or going across from left to right.

Here I have drawn it in two different ways. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1JaUjGU2cnnnpabDzyT_GQRsq7Uyy_qTRDrsPwrOL9D4/edit?usp=drive_web

One is the 'pentagon' way and the pther is the 'horizontal' way. Tell me if you have further doubts.
