Solution

The correct options are
A Human evolution can be studied from fossils
C All humans are a single species
  • Human evolution can be traced back in history by studying fossils, time-dating, etc. This can help in understanding how humans originated and what all changes were accumulated in them.
  • It is not true to say that human beings have evolved from chimpanzees. Rather, both human beings and chimpanzees are believed to have evolved from a common ancestor. That common ancestor is likely to have been neither human or chimpanzee.
  • Initially humans were classified on the basis of races. This was later disapproved, proposing that all humans are a single species.
