I think he meant a spanning tree, i.e. one that has all the nodes but 
all edges. A graph can have many spanning trees.

This works for undirected edges. For directed, there might not be a 
spanning tree in the mathematical sense, but you can still
get one if you reverse the arrows, like in this one
