  • vrushal

    i think answer of question 2 is b because cranial capacity of neanderthal man was 1450 cc and cro-magnon man was 1600 cc and for modern man is 1400 cc.

    • ravina

      i think they r confusing us
      qki bracket me homosapiens mention kar rahe h acc. to that ans 1 is correct
      becoz homo sapiens include-neaderthal man
      -cromagnon man
      -homo sapiens sapiens
      (modern man)
      aur agar ham homo sapiens ke ancestors ki bat kare then they have inceasing capacity

      and if we ans this ques in acc to modern man then ans 1 will wrong
