Answer . That would depend on the meaning of 'undisturbed'.
You can tell the age of the layers. The bottom layer is the oldest and the top is the youngest. When the layers are disturbed they tend to get bent and messed up a…nd you cannot tell the age

The bottom is oldest. The top is newest. -From bottom to top is the equivalent of oldest to youngest in an undisturbed sequence.
no because that's why I asked u
