We present two applications of explicit formulas, due to Cuntz and Krieger, for computations in $K$-homology of graph $C^{\ast }$-algebras. We prove that every $K$-homology class for such an algebra is represented by a Fredholm module having finite-rank commutators, and we exhibit generating Fredholm modules for the $K$-homology of quantum lens spaces.
