A: Java Man
The correct answer is Java Man.
See The Reason for That answer below:
Java Man, also known as Homo erectus, is a hominid species that lived in the Pleistocene epoch, approximately 1.8 million to 300,000 years ago. The first fossils of Java Man were discovered in 1891 by Eugène Dubois, a Dutch anatomist and paleontologist, in Trinil, on the banks of the Bengawan Solo River in Java, Indonesia.
The fossils consisted of a skullcap, a thigh bone, and two molar teeth. Dubois named the species Pithecanthropus erectus, which means “upright ape-man,” and believed that it represented the missing link between apes and humans. Later, the species was reclassified as Homo erectus.
The age of the fossils has been estimated through various dating methods, including biostratigraphy, radiometric dating, and paleomagnetic analysis. The current estimates range from 1.3 million to 1.8 million years old, although some researchers suggest that the age could be as old as 2 million years.
Java Man is significant because it is one of the earliest known hominid species to have migrated out of Africa, and its discovery has played a critical role in our understanding of human evolution.
