Route redistribution Vs BPG

Hello experts,

I am trying to understand something about routing.

Lets assume we have 6 routers and all are connected to one another. 2 routers are running RIP and are adjacent and 2 routers are running ospf and are adjacent to each other and 2 routers are running eigrp and are adjacent.

Can we use BGP protocole to run on all of them and route routes in this way? Also when do you use redistribution if BGP is the way to go?

is this a school question?  Be very careful with BGP unless you want the entire internet to try and route through your network

You mean exchange routes between the routers running other protocols?  Yes, you could.  But then again, you could do the same thing with any routing protocol.

Also when do you use redistribution if BGP is the way to go?
BGP is not necessarily "the way to go".  

Redistribution is used to inject routes into a routing protocol (any routing protocol).  

BGP is called for... well, in a number of situations.  But simply exchanging routes between other routing protocols is not one of those situations.
