Solution

Industrial melanism was highlighted by Biston betularia.

Explanation:

The common peppered moth, or Biston betularia, was employed in British industrial melanism research. With the exception of their body coloration, the darker and lighter forms are similar. They occurred less frequently when Britain underwent its industrial revolution.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?

X, Y, and Z are three animals. The animal X can fly but animal Y can only run on ground or walls. The forelimbs of animals X and Y have the same basic design but they are used for different purposes such as flying and running respectively. The animal Z became extinct an long time ago. The study of fossils of Z tells us that it had some features like those of X and some like those of Y. In fact, Z is said to form a connecting link in the evolutionary chain of X and Y.
(a) What could the animals X, Y and Z be?
(b) What name is given to the forelimbs like those of X and Y which have the same basic design but different functions?
