# You have two input data sets to work with. The first data set is the employees at your company, and the second is all the pairs of employees who are virtually friends so far. It does not matter which employee's ID is in which column, the friendships are bidirectional.

PARENT, as well as OUT of TARGET
- target is root => reset root to None
- target has no child; and target is LEFT or RIGHT child of parent
=> reset parent's child (specific side) to None
