Question

Which of the following specialities are used in order to create a fossil record?

  1. Comparative anatomy

  2. Radiometric dating

  3. DNA analysis

  4. All of the above

hintHint:

Fossils are the dead remains of the organisms that used to roam the earth millions and billions of years ago.

The correct answer is:

All of the above


    • A fossils record is a document to record the fossils found from the pre-historic era till now.
    • Many specialties help in creating the fossils record.
    • DNA analysis presents us with proof that two or more species had to share the same ancestry. It shows how closely or distinctly two species are related.
    • Anatomy also presents proof of evolution, when two organisms share some anatomical similarity, it shows that they evolve from the same ancestor.
    • Radioactive dating is the method that helps in establishing the age of the fossil and how old is the fossil.

    How does fossil record support the idea that evolution occurred on Earth?

    • From fossils we get information about history of life millions of years ago and can conclude the changes between life of that time and now.
