Paleontologists have discovered fossils of centipedes that are 414 M years old. These fossils are at least 20M years older than the earliest land-dwelling animals previously identified. The paleontologists are confident that these centipedes lived on land even though the fossilized centipedes were discovered in rock that also contained fossilized remains of animals known to be water-dwelling

The paleontologistsâ€™ view would be LEAST supported by the truth of which one of the following

A)The rock in which the fossilized centipedes were found wes formed from mud flats that were occasionally covered by river water

B)Fossils of the earliest land-dwelling animals that had previously been identified were found in rock that did not contain fossilized remains of water-dwelling animals

Picked A.

B does not support the argument but neither goes against it, A makes a feeble attempt to refute the conclusion.
