Carbon-14 has a half-life of 5,730 years. If the age of an object older than 50,000 years cannot be determined by radiocarbon dating, then carbon-14 levels in a sample are undetectable after approximately ten half-lives. carbon-14 levels in a sample are undetectable after approximately nine half-lives. the half-life of carbon-14 is too long to accurately date the object. a radioisotope with a shorter half-life should be used to date the object.

Care to help????
I think it should be: a radioisotope with a shorter half-life should be used to date the object. This is because every element has the identical isotope that just changes in neutrons, but has the same atomic number
