A) Analogous structures and represent convergent evolution.
B) Phylogenetic structures and represent divergent evolution.
C) Homologous structures and represent convergent evolution.
D) Homologous structures and represent divergent evolution.
Correct Answer: A
Solution :The wings of butterflies and of birds are alike. They are not anatomically similar structures though they perform similar functions. Hence, analogous structures are a result of convergent evolution, they are different structures evolving for the same function and hence having similarity. Hence, the correct option is [a].
