  11. Geologic Time Scale is the most relative time scale which records the time intervals on
    Earth corresponding to each other in succession. It is used by geologists to
    tell Earth’s history because it conforms to the order of Earth’s development
    with respect to dividing time in terms of Earth’s biotic composition representing
    various life forms.
