Best Answer

Explanation:

  • A successor is a term that appears immediately after a number, term, or value. 
  • If n is a number (and n might be any whole number), then n+1 is the number that comes after it.
  • For example,n = - 10 If , then successor of -10 is -10 + 1 = -9
  • In the successor we have to move from left to right on the number line.
  • Also,-17  is on the right side of -18.
  • As a result,-17  is the successor of -18.

Final Answer:

Hence, the correct option is (c) i.e. -17.
