Linear pathways have no major interjections. This means that they are e.g. glyccolysis. However cyclic pathways tend to use the last product they create to rebegin the cycle. They make products but recycle the same key components e.g. the Krebs cycle.

What metabolic pathway is common to both aerobic and anaerobic processes of sugar breakdown?

Glycolysis is the metabolic pathway common to both aerobic and anaerobic processes of sugar breakdown. It is the metabolic pathway that converts glucose into pyruvate. All organisms produce a high energy compound ATP by releasing energy stored in glucose and other sugars.
