Solution

  1. The given pictures indicate paleontological evidences of evolution.
  2. Large number of organisms get buried due to disasters like flood, earthquake, volcano, etc. Remnants and impressions of such organisms remain preserved underground and form fossils.
  3. Carbon dating is a method used to measure the age of fossils.
  Is there an error in this question or solution?
