(a)
Vestigial organs
(b)
Analogous organs
(c)
Homologous organs
(d)
Exoskeleton
Correct answer: (b) 
Solution: Analogous organs show the superficial resemblance. Their internal structure is quite different. They develop in unrelated organisms. Stages in the development are different. They have similar functions. They have a dissimilar developmental pattern. Analogous organs show convergent evolution. Wings of locust, pigeon and bat are the examples of analogous organs as they have similar function and internal structures are different. 
Therefore, the correct answer is option B.
