    Answer:

    Sandstone is younger than the granite rocks

    Explanation:

    • As the rocks layer found at the bottom are the oldest and closer to the ground surface are the younger. This is due to the law of superimposition and as when looking at the outcrops you will notice pieces of sandstone within the batholith that indicates that the base is formed by granite and is later cemented by sandstone rock
