It has long been supposed that Neanderthal humans were replaced by modern humans. Most anthropologists thought that the two groups did not have contact or interbreed. However, a recent archaeological dig found Neanderthal artifacts and modern human artifacts mixed together, indicating that there was some contact between the two. The archaeologists leading this dig have published a new article asserting that, in fact, Neanderthals and modern humans did live side by side and interbreed.

Which of the following evidence would provide the strongest support for the archaeologists' claim?


A Carbon dating of the artifacts that reveals they are the same age.

B Burials in which there are Neanderthal and modern human bones.

C DNA analysis of bones that indicates the presence of Neanderthal and modern human DNA in the same individual.

D Cave paintings that depict Neanderthals and modern humans.

E Modern human villages built directly on top of Neanderthal villages.

B & C both look correct.

C strengthens interbreeding hence went for it.Could not negate B with surety.

C states the point (interbreed) mentioned in the argument's conclusion. Therefore C !!

The key point here is the claim made by archaeologist that Neanderthals and modern humans did live side by side and interbreed.

In the answer choices, the choice C gives clear information about interbreed.
