Detailed Solution for Test: Evolution (NCERT) - Question 6

The fossils can be defined as remains of impressions of the hard parts of the past life-forms in the strata of the earth. Fossils provide one of the most acceptable evidences in support of evolution, because we can study the evolutionary past of individuals in the form of their fossils. The study of fossils is known as paleontology. The evidence of evolution based on the knowledge of fossils is called paleontological evidence. Living organisms living in various ages and entombed in various starta of rocks provide concrete clues to the variety of life that existed in the past.
Age of the fossils can be determined by three methods: (i) Radioactive clock method (II) Radioactive carbon method and (iii) Potassium Organ method.
