- First : Second
- Successor : Predecessor
- Present : Past
- Contemporary : Historic
The correct pair in the given analogy is: Successor : Predecessor
Successor is someone who comes after another person in a particular position, while predecessor refers to the person who held that position before the successor. Therefore, the relationship between the two words is that of after and before, respectively.
