Solution

The correct option is B Analogous organs
Wings of butterfly and wings of birds are analogous as they share a common function but not the embryonic origin. So, the option B is correct.
If they share the embryonic origin then they are called the homologous organs. So, the option C is not correct.
Vestigial organs are the organs that are present in the body but not perform any function. For example, male nipples and the appendix.
