Question: What is the limitation of relative dating?

The limitation of the relative dating of fossils is that it does not give the absolute age of the fossils that were preserved.

What relative dating Cannot tell us?

Relative dating puts geologic events in chronological order without requiring that a specific numerical age be assigned to each event. Second, it is possible to determine the numerical age for fossils or earth materials. Third, magnetism in rocks can be used to estimate the age of a fossil site.
