a)Potato, onion
c)onion, ginger

Answered by Expert



Structures which have similar function, but are different in structure and developmental origin are called analogous structures.

Out of the given choices, potato-onion and ginger-onion are analogous because they are modified stems and perform the function of food storage.

Radish-ginger are also analogous because although radish is a root and ginger is a modified stem but perform the same function of food storage.

Ginger-turmeric are homologous structures.
