Science question?

posted by on .

1. Under which of the following conditions would a fossil most likely form?
A living thing dies and sediment is very slowly deposited on top of its body.
A living thing dies and sediment quickly covers its body.
A living thing dies and its skeleton is left exposed to the elements.
A living thing dies and a radioactive element breaks down its body.

What I already know:
That most fossils form when living things die and they are buried by the sediment. the sediment slowly hardens into rock and preserves the shapes of organisms.

So would the answer be A?

    Okay, So When an organism dies and falls into the water, the remains are sometimes covered up quickly by sediments. But they do not decay completely, that takes time.

    Am I right?

    So would the answer be B? :-)

    Yes. B is the answer. It must e covered quickly or it will rot.
