Question

A wolf's scientific name is Canis rufus. Which genus does it belong to?
  1. Canis
     
  2. Rufus
     
  3. Wolf
     
  4. Animalia 


Solution

The correct option is A Canis
 
Binomial nomenclature (also called binominal nomenclature or binary nomenclature) is a formal system of naming species of living things by giving each a name composed of two parts. The first part of the name identifies the genus to which the species belongs; the second part identifies the species within the genus. Here wolfs belong to the genus Canis and to the species rufus.
