    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.

    Structure dictates function

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

    so you basically just answered your own question by giving the definition of analogous
