Why option D ?

Rasika said:   1 decade ago
Why d? I feel present and past has the closest relationship rather than successor:predecessor!

Successor: a pesson or thing that succeeds another.
Predessor: a thing that has been followed or replaced by another.

That means Succesor comes AFTER predessor and Predessor comes BEFORE successor.

Hence I feel this is the closest relationship with After:Before.

Correct Ananya!

Synonym of successor is after synonym of predecessor is before its very easy question.

Why not B ?

Successor: A person who follows next in order (AFTER).

Predecessor: one who precedes you in time (BEFORE).

(as you holding a position).

Historic tells of the 'past' (before).

Similarly present and contemporary. So why not B and C ?

Jyoti said:   9 years ago
After and before behaves like a future and past tense.

Something that was happened before....past and history correct.
But something will happened after....present and contemporary can't be correct.

So, successor:predecessor is a right answer.

Example 1,2,3 :- 2's predecessor is 1 and its successor is 3.

I hope you got my point.

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.
