    Explanation:

    The principle of cross-cutting relationships states that a fault or intrusion is younger than the rocks that it cuts through. The fault labeled “E” cuts through all three sedimentary rock layers (A, B,and C) and also cuts through the intrusion (D). So the fault must be the youngest formation that is seen and known of.
