D: Both B and C



Best Answer


Charles Darwin on his voyage to Galapagos island observed the different finches.

All finches were closely related to each other coming from a common ancestor. 

As these finches had adopted different and new features for their survival, this is known as adaptive radiation.

Adaptive radiation is an example of divergent evolution. Divergent evolution represents the evolutionary

pattern in which species share a common ancestor that modifies itself to become different over time.
