2.Which of the following is a correct statement about human evolution?
Planet of the apes:You probably don’t have any issue distinguishing a human from a chimpanzee, gorilla, ororangutan. But you might if you were looking at DNA instead of physical traits. The differences you see are caused bya shockingly tiny proportion of our DNA—who knew that just a few Gs, As, Ts, and Cs could do so much?

All members of the hominin group are extinct except one—us,Homo sapiens. In the not-too-distant past, there wereseveral other Homo species living on Earth; a couple of them lived at the same time asHomo sapiens. There werealso many species of our closest extinct cousins, the Australopithecines, and several other hominin species as well.Although rarely even close to complete specimens, hominin fossils have told us a great deal about our extinctrelatives. In this level, you’ll explore features of various hominin skulls to learn about some of the things that make us—and other members of our genusHomo—human. Complete the level and answer questions 6–10 below beforemoving on to the final level, “Inside out of Africa.”6.According to the completed tree, which of the following traits is shared among all species in thegenus Homo, but no others?
