Absolute magnitude in the rest-frame FUV and area distribution for clumps found in galaxies with Nc ≥ 2 detected at 2 <z < 4.5 with kp = 1.5. Each clump is color coded by the number of clumps found in its parent galaxy. The color scheme is found at the bottom right of the main panel. The black solid line in each of the auxiliary panels shows a fit of a two Gaussian model to the observed distribution of areas and magnitudes of the clumps. We observe that it is more probable to find the brightest and largest clumps in two-clump systems. The contours show the smoothed distribution of the fraction of two-clump systems at levels of 10%, 25%, and 50%. It is clear that the majority of two-clump galaxies (with respect to all clumpy systems) is found in brighter and larger clumps.
