Solution

The correct option is C first letter capital and a single word

Biological nomenclature involves scientific naming of organisms. The commonly accepted and followed system of nomenclature is binomial nomenclature. In this, a Latin name consisting of two words is assigned to all organisms. The first word denotes the genera or the genus to which the organism belongs. It is written with the first letter capitalized. The second word is the name of the species to which the organism belongs. It is written in all small letters. The binomial name of an organism is always written in italics or underlined.
