Homologous organs are the organs which have same origin but different function. They are inherited from a common ancestor. E.g. arms of man, wings of bat and flippers of whale. All have same structure, but perform different functions. So they are homologous.
Analogous are the ones which are similar in function and external appearance. E.g. wings of bat and wings of birds, perform same function (of flying). So they are analogous.
