You have potato, carrot, radish, sweet potato, tomato and ginger bought from the market in your jute bag. Identify two vegetables to represent the correct homologous structures.

(A) Potato and tomato

(B) Carrot and tomato

(C) Potato and sweet potato

(D) Carrot and radish

Solution

(D)

Homologous structures are similar in origin but perform different functions.

Carrot and radish are underground roots. So, they represent the correct homologous structures.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?

Name two animals having homologous organs and two having analogous organs. Name these organs.

 

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?
(c) Name one feature in which Z resembled X.
(d) Name one feature in which Z resembled Y.
