Let's say you have module A, B, and C

Module C depends on module B and module B depends on module A.

When describing module B, I state that it's dependancy is module A. How do I describe module B's relationship to C? (the opposite of a dependancy)

Thank you for your help!

It depends on the specific nature of the dependency.  One common way: if C depends on B, B is C's parent.
