Solution :-

A lineage or group of individuals evolves into various forms as a result of adaptive radiation. In addition to natural selection, resources and habitats also contribute to the evolution of these forms. The Galapagos Darwin finches may have a common ancestor but now have different beaks based on their food preferences. The different feeding habits and types of beaks these finches possess are due to their different eating habits. It has evolved from a seed-eating finch ancestor to become insectivorous, blood-sucking, and many other types of finches with varied diets.
