    180 seconds
    Q. When a layer of rock cuts through the other layers
    answer choices
    the layer that cut through is younger than the layers it cuts through
    the layer at the bottom is younger
    the layers are the same age
    the index fossil is destroyed

  • Question 7
    180 seconds
    Q. What would indicate that a series of fossils represent evolution?
