1. The dots on the map below show the present locations of living coral reefs. Site X indicates an area of fossil
coral reefs preserved in rocks formed during the Jurassic Period.

Which inference is best supported by this map?

(1) The climate at site X during the Jurassic Period was colder than the present climate at site X.
(2) Site X was covered by warm ocea.!1water during the Jurassic Period.
(3) She X has drifted southward since the Jurassic Period.
(4) The coral at site X evolved from ocefui-d\velling animals into land-dwelling animals after the Jurassic
