Question

The wings of a butterfly and the wings of a pigeon are said to be


  1. Analogous
  2. Homologous
  3. Vestigial
  4. None of the above


Solution

The correct option is A Analogous

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.
