    how do we call things after its precedences?

    I have a list of number, for example: 1, 2, 3, 4.
    And I want to say: "If you pick 3, you will have to pick 1 and 2 also. If you pick 2, you have to pick 1, too" but in a general way.

    I short, I would like to express something like: if you pick the ___ items, you have to pick its precedences (or its precedent items), and I want to replace the ___ with a word which is the antonym of "precedent".

    Re: how do we call things after its precedences?

    If you choose x, you have to choose everything that precedes it too.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you emsr2d2, I would really appreciate if you can suggest some antonym of "precedence".
