Evolution: Fossil Record


(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Medium of Biology

A group of paleontologists recently discovered a sequence of layered rocks in a remote area. Within these layers, they found a variety of fossils from different species, organized in a particular order. Based on this fossil record, what conclusions could the scientists draw about the evolutionary relationships and the progression of life forms over time in this region?
The scientists can conclude that all the species found in the layers coexisted at the same time.
The scientists can only identify the species of the fossils, but cannot draw any conclusions about their evolutionary relationships or progression over time.
The scientists can only determine the age of the rocks, not the fossils within them.
The scientists can draw conclusions about the evolutionary relationships between the species and the progression of life forms over time in this region by analyzing the ages and identities of the fossils found within each layer of the sequence of layered rocks.
The scientists can conclude that the species found in the upper layers are younger, but cannot determine any evolutionary relationships.
