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 understand.

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: 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.

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.

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

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

(as you holding a position).

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.

Historic tells of the 'past' (before).

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

Why d? I feel present and past has the closest relationship rather than successor:predecessor!
