Root bridge means the shortest path to reach the particular network when multiple paths is available.

A root bridge is a switch elected in a network with the lowest Bridge ID which is made up a priority value and mac address in the spanning tree protocol. However, I was under impression more than 1 switch can be a root bridge if MST is configured with multiple instances.

Can anyone clarify this?

Thanks :).
