Among the following sets of examples for divergent evolution , select the incorrect option :
Brain of bat , man and cheetah
Heart of bat , man and cheetah
Forelimbs of bat , man and cheetah
Eye of octopus , bat and man
As we learnt in
Types of organic evolution -
Convergent or parallel evolution -
Different geographical areas exhibiting similar groups of plants and animals with strikingly similar appearance is called convergent or parallel evolution.
These organisms may be distantly related.
Divergent evolution occurs in the same structure, example - forelimbs, heart, brain of vertebrates which have developed along different directions due to adaptation to different needs whereas eye of octopus, bat and man are examples of analogous organs showing convergent evolution.
