TCP Reno based CWND

In linux if we are working on TCP-RENO (in-place of cubic), cwnd will increase till packet drops occur I will get sawtooth graph for cwnd vs time........... Am I right??

RTT based CWND

If cwnd is computed based on currently updated RTT along with Previous RTT values packet drop will not occur

I will get straight horizontal line graph for cwnd vs time

Am I right??

No, you're wrong. You can get packet drop even if you consider Previous RTT, because packet drop can always occur for various reasons.
