Q: What is a requisite cycle?
A requisite cycle occurs when two courses both list the other course as a corequisite or strict-corequisite. Essentially, it creates an infinite loop, or "cycle", in the graph. This prevents us from calculating metrics and generating visualizations.
To fix a requisite cycle simply remove one of the corequisites. For example: Course A lists Course B as a corequisite, and Course B also lists Course A as a corequisite.
This can be visualized as Course A <---> Course B.
To remove the cycle, only one course should list the other as a corequisite. This can be visualized as either of the following:
Course A ---> Course B
Course A <--- Course B
