How does "Duplicate Of" / "Duplicate By" Works in workitems Closed as "Duplicate"?

Aparna Sukumaran (333660) | asked Feb 25 '16, 3:13 p.m.
  When a Workitem X is closed with resolution "Duplicate" should we use "Duplicate Of" or "Duplicate by" link?
Where Workitem Y is the duplicate that is still with status "in progress"

when Y is "in progress" and you wish to close X, I would pick "Duplicate Of" during closure of X..

X is closed, marked as "duplicate of" Y
Y carries the work forward and carries the links to X with the relation "duplicated by"
