Solution

The correct option is A Kingdom, Division, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species
The correct descending sequence of taxonomic categories, also known as the taxonomic hierarchy, is Kingdom, Phylum or Division, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species. The higher ranks give a more general description. Description of life forms becomes more specific as we descend down the hierarchy.
