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.

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.
