// global option set.
RetrieveDependentComponentsRequest dependencyRequest =
    new RetrieveDependentComponentsRequest
        ObjectId = _optionSetId,
        ComponentType = (int)componenttype.OptionSet

RetrieveDependentComponentsResponse dependencyResponse =

// Here you would check the dependencyResponse.EntityCollection property
// and act as appropriate. However, we know there is exactly one 
// dependency so this example deals with it directly and deletes 
// the previously created attribute.
DeleteAttributeRequest deleteAttributeRequest =
    new DeleteAttributeRequest
    EntityLogicalName = Contact.EntityLogicalName,
    LogicalName = "sample_examplepicklist"

Console.WriteLine("Referring attribute deleted.");

// Finally, delete the global option set. Attempting this before deleting
// the picklist above will result in an exception being thrown.
