    When each ....... value is half its predecessor, the observation drop to ...... size

    When each ....... value is half its predecessor, the observation drop to ...... size very quickly.

    1. relevant- biggest
    2. repeating- important
    3. previous- significant
    4. succeeding- insignificant

    This question came from our University Entrance Exam held in Iran. I have no idea about that. Would you please help me and share your views?
