a. H. neandertalensis had a heavier brow ridge and less pronounced chin than H. sapiens.
b. H. neandertalensis had a larger brain and smaller jaw than H. sapiens.
c. H. neandertalensis had lighter bones and less body bulk than H. sapiens.
d. H. neandertalensis had smaller teeth and a larger forehead than H. sapiens.
That's fine. Believe me, I come up dry often enough too.
It's asking you to compare two of the skulls. Specifically, it's asking you to compare the bottom two in the picture: the neanderthal skull (number 4) and the modern human skull (number 5).
The back part of the neanderthal's skull is bigger than the modern day human's. A little, anyway. And the jaw is less pointy and sits closer to the neck. The question asks you which option best describes that situation.
I think it's probably B.
