Four students A, B, C and D reported the following set of organs to be homologous. Who is correct ?
(A) Wings of a bat and a butterfly
(B) Wings of a pigeon and a bat
(C) Wings of a pigeon and a butterfly
(D) Forelimbs of cow, a duck and a lizard
Select the set of homologous organs from the following :
(a) Wings of pigeon and a butterfly
(b) Wings of bat and a pigeon
(c) Forelimbs of cow, a duck and a lizard
(d) Wings of butterfly and a bat
Homologous organs are the organs that have a similar origin and basic structure but different functions. Forelimbs of a cow, a duck and a lizard have a similar structure but different functions.
Hence, the correct option is Forelimbs of cow, a duck and a lizard.
