Yep that's right! :) The correct answer is B. In July of 1799 Napoleon's army was making fortification in northern Egypt after conquering the country. One of the French soldiers who was digging in the area near Rosetta hit upon a small black rock. The rock had carvings in three different styles of writing. After studying the stone, scholars realized that two of the styles of writing on the stone were ancient Egyptian. Both of the styles were so ancient that no one had been able to translate them. The third style was Greek. The Greek was easy to translate. When the scholars realized that the message was probably the same one written in three different ways, the ability to read Greek helped scholars understand many things about hieroglyphs. https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100819135317AAkjkJW

How were scholars able to translate hieroglyphic symbols? Because early hieroglyphics were picture writing, scholars could decipher their meaning and then match them to more modern Egyptian writing Archaeologists unearthed a set of papryrus scrolls that served as a dictionary in acienct Egypt By comparing a message written in both hieroglyphics and Greek, scholars were able to translate the hieroglyphic symbols Scholars compared hieroglyphics to cuneiform and found enough similarities to create and alphabet of the Egyptian writing system
