    The right option is; C

    Radiometric dating is a method used to obtain the relative age of a rock or fossil.

    Radiometric dating is a method used to determine the ages of rocks and to know the ages of fossils that are present within those rocks. This method date substances that selectively contains trace radioactive impurities during their formation. There are various methods of radiometric dating that uses a different radioactive element. They include; potassium-argon dating, uranium-lead dating and rubidium-strontium dating
