Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1analogous 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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.
