As far as I know, "magic cycle" is not a standard terminology. Presumably the teacher defined it during the lecture, so you'll be able to tell us what it means (won't you??).

What I understood from the lecture is an example of square magic, in which the sum over columns, rows or diagonals is same. In a graph, we say that it is magic cycle if in every point the number of edges is the same. So, I can solve questions 1 and 2 approximately. But how can I solve other questions.

Thank you very very much
