Solution

The correct option is B Peking man
Peking man is characterized by a cranial capacity averaging about 1,000 cubic cm, though some individual skull capacities approached 1,200 cubic cm nearly the size of modern mans. Peking man had a skull that was flat in profile, with a small forehead, a keel along the top of the head for attachment of powerful jaw muscles, very thick skull bones, heavy browridges, an occipital torus, a large palate, and a large, chinless jaw. Java man had less cranial capacity 800 to 1000 cc. Cromagnon man cranial capacity is 1600 cc. Thus, option B is correct and other options are wrong.
