Answer

D.

Work Step by Step

A. is true because convergence can make it seem as if two things are related when they are not, and B. is true since variation in the rate of change can be masked when some phenotypes change slowly compared to others. Finally, C. can be true either due to convergence (A.) or to evolutionary reversal. Since A-C. are all true, D. is the best answer.
