Question

What are fossils? Giving one example, explain how fossils provide evidence for evolution.

Solution

The remains of animals or plants that lived in the past are known as fossils. The fossil bird Archaeopteryxlooks like a bird, but it has many other features that are also present in reptiles. This is because Archaeopteryx had feathered wings like those of birds, but teeth and tail like those of reptiles. Thus, the study of fossils provide evidence for evolution.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
