MCQ

Select the correct statement.

Options

  • Moulds are the most common type of fossil.

  • Fossils help in understanding the habit of extinct animals.

  • Actual remains of fossils are generally formed on land.

  • Fossils of primitive forms of organisms occupy the upper layers of the earth during fossilization.

Solution

Fossils help in understanding the habit of extinct animals.

Explanation:

Moulds are common types of fungi. Actual remains of fossils are generally formed in ocean beds and earth crust. Fossils of primitive forms occupy the lower strata of the earth's crust.
