Which of the following statements accurately describes the process of dating Earth history? A. Scientists use index fossils to determine the specific years of age of a new fossil. B. Scientists use relative dating to determine the absolute age of a new fossil. C. Scientists use radioactive isotopes to determine the absolute age of a new fossil. D. Scientists use radiometric dating to determine the relative age of a new fossil Answer: C. Using radioactive isotopes, which decay at a steady rate, scientists can find the age in years of a sample. This technique takes advantage of the fact that different radioactive isotopes have diffe
I think it s C. It makes more sense.
