Fault I is cut by fault J, so is older than J. Fault J is cut by unconformity K so is older than K. Unconformity K is cut by intrusion G so is older than G, and intrusion G is cut by fault H so is older than H. Hence, unconformity L is the oldest on this list., Correct Answer:, D Points Earned: , 1/1 Your Response: , D 4., Which is younger:,
