Q.7:- Can you identify the correct sequence of taxonomical categories?

(a) Species → Order → Phylum → Kingdom

(b) Genus → Species → Order → Kingdom

(c) Species → Genus → Order → Phylum

 

Answer

The correct hierarchical arrangement of taxonomic categories in ascending order is

Species → Genus → Family → Order → Class → Phylum → Kingdom

Therefore, both (a) and (c) represent correct sequences of taxonomic categories. In sequence (b), species should be followed by genus. Therefore, it does not represent the correct sequence.
