A. unitarianism
B. Principle of Superposition*****
C. Principle of Original Horizontality
D. Principle of Faunal Succession

I think it is B...?

9. True or False: Using the principles presented in this lesson, Geologists can make assumptions about the absolute ages of sedimentary rock layer to construct times lines of events in the geologic record found in the rocks.

A. True ******
B. False

I think it is true - but I am concerned about absolute and relative aging??

Thank you in advance
