Solution :-

Correct answer – (d)

Homologous organs have the same origin as each of the above organs, but different functions. Homologous organs can be defined as the organs of various animals having similar basic structure but different functions. For example, a whale's flippers, a frog's forelimbs, and man have the same basic structures but perform different functions, which is why they are called homologous organs.
