Solution :-

The correct sequence of taxonomic categories can be observed in the case of both (a) and (c) as the hierarchy includes Species, Genus, Family, Order, Phylum, and Kingdom that are arranged in an ascending manner. While in the case of option (b) Species need to be written first then Genus is to be written since species is the basic unit of classification. Thus, option (b) does not show the correct sequence of hierarchy.
