B

D
adaptive organs

Solution

The correct option is B analogous organs
Analogous organs are those organs which are structurally different and functionally similar in unrelated groups of organisms. In this example, the butterfly is a non-chordate while the pigeon is a higher chordate (bird) and yet, both of them use their wings to fly.
