Solution :-

The classification systems change according to the need as they arise. There are millions of plants, animals, and microorganisms found on earth while several new species have been identified by scientists every now and then. The world consists of huge numbers of species that are still left to be discovered. As they get discovered, they consist of new characters so they need to be classified by a new system of classification which needs to be prepared based on their characters. Thus, it results in the change in the previous system of classification leading to the formation of the new classification system.
