Solution

The correct option is D Neanderthal man
Neanderthals were a species of human in the genus Homo, which became extinct around 40,000 years ago. They were closely related to modern humans having DNA over 99.5% the same. Remains left by Neanderthals include bone and stone tools, which are found in Eurasia, from Western Europe and Central and Northern Asia and the Middle East. With an average cranial capacity of 1600 cm3, the cranial capacity of Neanderthals is notably larger than the 1400 cm3 average for modern humans, indicating that their brain size was largest.
Therefore, the correct answer is option D.
