Drop in the size of the largest connected cluster of the WAN against removal of nodes.

High degree refers to a conventional targeted removal strategy wherein each subsequent step corresponds to removing upto a fraction, q, of nodes with the highest degree. In low degree strategy, each subsequent step corresponds to removing upto a fraction, q, of nodes with the lowest degree. The random removal strategy is an average over 500 statistically independent simulations.
