Quantum walk search may exhibit phenomena beyond the intuition from a conventional random walk theory. One of such examples is exceptional configuration phenomenon–-it appears that it may be much harder to find any of two or more marked vertices, that if only one of them is marked. In this paper, we analyze the probability of finding any of marked vertices in such scenarios and prove upperbounds for various sets of marked vertices. We apply the upperbounds to large collection of graphs and show that the quantum search may be slow even when taking real-world networks.
