Solution

The correct option is B Analogous organs
  • Analogous organs are organs that have a different origin but have the same functions. 
  • In birds, the wings are modified forelimbs, while in insects they are made of the cuticle.
  • But the wings of a housefly and the wings of a pigeon have the same function of flying. Hence, they are analogous organs. 
So, the correct answer is option A.
