My Math Forum Markov chain and classifying states

(B) 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 I think the communicating classes are {1,3}, {2}, and {4}. I'm not quite sure, but I believe states 1,3, and 4 are ergodic, and 3 is of period 2. (C) 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 The communicating classes are {1,2} and {3,4} with {1,2} of period 2 and {3,4} ergodic. Is this right? I think I have the communicating classes right, but I'm not sure about the state classifications. Thanks in advance for any help.
