Explanation of Solution

Lancelets - j. invertebrate chordates

Lancelets or Amphioxus are cephalochordates that are the primitive chordates. They show characteristics of both invertebrates and chordates and hence are known as invertebrate chordates.

Lampreysi. living jawless vertebrates.

Lampreys are classified under Clade: Cyclostomata under Class: Pisces. They are the only group of living jawless vertebrates along with hagfishes.

Amphibians- h. first land tetrapods.

The amphibians live in both aquatic and terrestrial environment. They evolved from lung fishes and are the first four-legged vertebrates, the tetrapods to colonize the land.

Lizardsf. ectothermic amniotes

Lizards are reptiles. Reptiles are amniotes—the group of vertebrates that are completely terrestrial. The lizards are cold-blooded animals and therefore are known as ectothermic amniotes.

Birdsc. feathered amniotes

The birds are the only class in vertebrates that can fly with the help of wings made of feathers. The birds belong to the amniote vertebrates that are completely adapted to terrestrial mode of life. The birds also have volant adaptation apart from being terrestrial...
