Which of these statements best explains how fossil records provide evidence to the scientific theory of evolution? They show how natural selection happened on Earth by chance. They show how organisms choose to adapt to changing Earth conditions. They prove that structure and location of remains of organisms depict past events. They prove that natural selection always leads to greater complexity in organisms.

    Fossil records are really good examples of evolution, IMO. I wouldn't say "prove", but they do show that the structure and location of the remains depict past events.

    Well, here's some info to help you spot the false statements: Natural selection is the opposite of chance. Organisms cannot choose how to adapt. "Greater complexity" is ill-defined and not a necessary condition.

    Yes, the strata of the fossil layers show the chronological order of the development of organisms.
