Suppose you found a fossil of a clamshell. what can you conclude about the once living organism and how it became a fossil?

THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER 👇

The first step is to identify the fossil. We have already identified this fossil as a clams shell. We know that clam is from the sea, but if you could not, you could conclude that from knowing where you found the fossil (close to the beach, probably). If it’s found where it is, you can come to a conclusion about its arrival as a fossil, perhaps washed up on the shore or buried by an animal.
