What is exhibit parallel and divergent and convergent evolution?

Parallel evolution: two (or more) species or genera that evolve in similar ways over time. Divergent evolution: two or more closely related species or genera that evolve to become quite different from one another. Convergent evolution: two or more unrelated and dissimilar species or genera that evolve to become similar to one another, for example penguins (birds that used to fly), dolphins (mammals that used to walk on land) and fish (animals that were always swimming)

Convergent evolution is just the same biological trait in lineages that are not related. So, all fish, and many aquatic mammals, converge on the same torpedo body shape used for swimming.
