The order, from the longest time period to the shortest time periord is: Era, Period, Epoch
In the geological time scale we have divisions that go from the longest tho the shortest: Eon, Era, Period and Epoch. The more recent Eon is the Phanerozoic Eon in wich we find 3 eras: Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic. Each era has different periods, forme example, in the Mesozoic we find the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods and finally each period has a division in epochs, those could be for example Lower, Middle and Upper.
Please add the full excercise, what is the point of it?
it is D
A: 1. period - major divisions of geologic time within each eon 2. eon - major divisions of geologic time within each era 3. era - longest interval of geologic time. :)
