    difference between necessary and requisite

    Hi,

    I want to know the difference between 'necessary' and 'requisite'. They seem to be a pair of synoyms, but I wonder if there is any subtle difference.

    Thanks,

    Guangyu

    In most situations "necessary" is more natural, "requisite" is rather formal.
