Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 4

Explanation:

All of the above. The anatomical term heterodont refers to animals which possess more than a single tooth morphology. For example, members of the Synapsida generally possess incisors, canines ('eyeteeth'), premolars, and molars. The presence of heterodont dentition is an evidence of some degree of feeding/hunting specialization in a species. It also exhibits evolving food habits, availability of food and adaptation towards it.
