  1. Share an evolutionary and developmental history in different organisms 

    an example would be the wing of a bat and a human arm.

  2. The correct answer is -

    share an evolutionary and developmental history in different organisms.

    Homologous structures can be described as structures in different organisms/species that share common ancestor or having same evolutionary lineage but do not necessarily perform similar functions.

    For example - Forelimbs of bat and humans are considered as homologous structures but both perform different function.

    Thus, second option is the right answer.
