After - before given can be interpreted as future and past.

So, we are looking for an option that represents the Future and Past. Not in reverse order of any kind.

Option 1: first - second (it's talking about present and future).

Option 2: present - past (still not future and past).

Option 3: contemporary - historic (talking about the present and past).

Option 4. Successor and predecessor (future and past).

This is the correct option that matches the word given.

I hope you all understand.

I think the right answer is First : Second.

I think AFTER and BEFORE are opposite ends with respect to something in between them. Suppose, BEFORE CHRIST- AFTER CHRIST.

So this is refered to time dimension, hence contemporary: history refers the similar connection.

"Past and future" may be the answer but not "past and present".

Successor is a person who got the job after the previous worker, hence a predecessor is a person who got the job before someone else.
