analogous because bats and birds do not share a common ancestor, thus it is an example of convergent evolution. Homologous are traits shared between different species that share a common ancestor.

I learnt that analogous organs are same in function but different in structure, whereas homologous organs are those which are same in structure but different in function. So, I couldn't understand your answer. please explain in more simple words.

Well Bat arms and bird arms are the same in function and different in structure so obviously they are analogous.
