    C)  Homologous structures and represent convergent evolution.

    D)  Homologous structures and represent divergent evolution.

    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].
