B

C
Radish and carrot

D

Solution

The correct option is C Radish and carrot
Homologous structures are those that are related to common ancestry. Such structures have a common structural plan and are adapted to suit different functional roles. Of the given options, potato is a storage stem, tomato is a fruit (in fact, it is a berry), radish and carrots are roots. Since both radish and carrots are roots, they have similar structural plans and are homologous.
So, the correct answer is 'Radish and carrot'
