can the wing of a butterfly and the wing of a bat be considered homologous organs. why or why not (2 marks)

Expert Answer:

Dear student,
No. This is because they are not similar in their basic structural plan and have not arisen from a common ancestor. They are analogous organs, since they are only externally similar and perform similar function.
