Correct Answer
D
Layer D

Solution

The correct option is C Layer D
Generally, a fossil discovered in deeper layers of soil is considered to be an older fossil. This is because the fossilised organism died and over time more and more layers of soil deposited upon the fossil pushing it to deeper layers. A fossil found in upper layers would be relatively new.
