Dear student
Correct option is D)

 

  • The evolutionary trend can be traced by paleontological records of fossils. During excavations at the site of Herod the Great's palace in Israel in the early 1960's, 
  • archaeologists unearthed a small stockpile of seeds stowed in a clay jar dating back 2,000 years. 
  • in 2005, botanical researcher Elaine Solowey decided to plant one and today the tree continues to grow and thrive and this tree is Phoenix dactylifera or date palms.
  • Thus, the correct answer is option D.
