This is interesting. It shows that how confusing it can be Mathematica
when it comes to Discrete Mathematics. I think this is quite serious!
Not everyone is into Integration and Calculus these days. I urge
Mathematica folks seriously take a look at Combinatorics/Discrete
Mathematics.


Part of the confusion is from the new GraphPlot function which is
awesome by the way as a graphical tool!!!  gIt is nothing but a graph
drawing package! It creat such a pretty graph. But on the other hand,
has it's own data structure {v_i->v_j}.

Can someone explain to us that why a vertex should have Number
attribute, when we have Label and Weight attributes!!

 I think the VertexNumber is the one that creats the problem. When you
use DeleteVertices[h,{1,2}], it reconstruct a new graph with vertices
starting from 1,2,3... That's why

In[101]:= g = DeleteVertices[h, {1, 2}]
Graph:<1,2,Undirected>

DeleteVertices[g, {1, 2}]

Out[102]= Graph:<0,0,Undirected>

Which is an empty graph! Strange!!

I am guessing Wolfram folks are working on it! to unify the
combinatorics package!
