Minimum Spanning Tree
Medium Accuracy: 49.39% Submissions: 17507 Points: 4

Given a weighted, undirected and connected graph. The task is to find the sum of weights of the edges of the Minimum Spanning Tree.

The first line of input contains an integer T denoting the number of testcases. Then T test cases follow. The first line of each testcase contains two integers V (starting from 1), E denoting the number of nodes and number of edges. Then in the next line are 3*E space separated values a b w where a, b denotes an edge from a to b and w is the weight of the edge.

For each test case in a new line print the sum of weights of  the edges of the Minimum Spanning Tree formed of the graph.

User task:
Since this is a functional problem you don't have to worry about input, you just have to complete the function  spanningTree() which takes number of vertices V and the number of edges E and a graph graph as inputs and returns an integer denoting the sum of weights of the edges of the Minimum Spanning Tree.

Note: Please note that input of graph is 1-based but the adjacency matrix is 0-based.

Expected Time Complexity: O(V2).
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(V).

1 <= T <= 100
2 <= V <= 1000
V-1 <= E <= (V*(V-1))/2
1 <= a, b <= N
1 <= w <= 1000
Graph is connected and doesn't contain self loops & multiple edges.
