1.) Which type of fossil is shown to the right?
  1. Carbon film
  2. Mold

5.) Why are index fossils useful to geologists?
  1. They tell the absolute of the rock.
  2. They tell the ages of MANY rock layers in
    different locations
  3. They tell how the fossil was formed.
  4. They tell the EXACT age of the entire rock layer.

6.) Which is the correct sequence of events?
(oldest first)
  1. H, M, R
  2. M, B, R
  3. I, H, M
  4. I, M, H
  5. R, F, B

11
7.) What is meant by the relative age of a fossil?
  1. Its age compared to other rocks or fossils.
  2. The number of years since it formed.
  3. Its age as determined by carbon dating.
  4. Its age as determined by the radioisotopes it
    contains.

12
8.) How do most fossils form?
  1. The hard parts of an organism dry out in the air.
  2. The soft parts of an organism harden and turn to
    stone.
  3. An organism is buried by lava flows and encased
    in rock.
  4. An organism dies and its remains are buried by
    sediments.

13
Rock E would be an example of what cross-cut?
  1. Fault
  2. Fold
  3. Intrusion
  4. Extrusion
  5. Unconformity

14

be what type of fossil?
  1. Index fossil
  2. Mold
  3. Cast
  4. Trace fossil
  5. Carbon film
  6. Permineralized remains

16
Determining the absolute age of a sample based on
the ratio of the parent to the daughter is called
what?
  1. Hypothetical dating
  2. Relative dating
  3. Radiometric dating
  4. Organic dating

17
Radioactive dating works best with which type of
rock?
  1. Sedimentary rock
  2. Metamorphic rock
  3. Igneous rock
  4. Fossilized rock

18
Determining whether an object is older or younger
than other objects is called what?
  1. Relative dating
  2. Absolute dating
  3. Radiometric dating
  4. Gradualism

19
Radioactive dating enables geologists to
determine which of the following?
  1. Relative ages of rock
  2. Absolute ages of rocks
  3. Ages of the atoms in rocks
  4. Half-life of an organism
