Geologists use radioactive dating to...
- determine the relative age of rock layers.
- tell the difference between molds and casts.
- tell where one soil horizon begins and the next one ends.
- determine the absolute ages of rocks.

I think it is to determine the absolute ages of rocks, but I'm not quite sure. If someone could explain the correct answer in simple enough terms for a thirteen year old to understand I'd be much obliged. The only explanations I've found so far are too hard to understand.

    Please help me? My parents don't know anything on the subject and I'm very confused.

    Never mind. My answer was correct.
