The answer is D because When we go from higher taxonomic category to the lower then the general characteristics decreases as the specific characteristics becomes increases.

Hi .

The answer is A) Species.

Reason : Simple basic concept.
Genus is a group of species which are similar to each other.

For Example : I take Genera Solanum.. It has various species like Nigrum, Melongenna, tuberosus, etc.

It is clear that, if I refer to Genus Solanum, I may be referring to any of these species.
This condition is LESS SPECIFIC and MORE GENERAL

But, If I particularly refer to a species eg: Nigrum... Ultimately this condition get you MORE SPECIFIED/ NO GENERAL.

Coming to our question, LESS GENERAL (means more specified) when compared to genus is species only and not any other one.
Thank You.

Answer should be family because the question is less general characters as compared to genus

Option D. is correct, because lower to higher rank..similar characters are decrease's and complexity of organization increases.. soo.. division (phylum) Is correct answer..

We can easily understand the taxonomic category as
K P/D C O F G S in that s-means species,as it has less is easy way to learn taxonomic category.....(P/D means phylum/division)

Group of species is called genus. species is most important unit of taxonomic key. more diversity present in species as compare to genus. less similarity in anmial as compare to genus. species is smallest unit of taxonomy.

Species is more specific and less general
eg-Panthera tigris and Panthera pardis have tigris and pardis species specific while these both are less general
So the correct answer is 'a'

As we go from species to higher taxa like class,,, division and kingdom . no. of similar characteristics decreases. In the given opt-in division has less similar characteristics ..................very less similar than genus as it is higher taxa and consist of many different genuses with different families.

D) division. because as we go from species to kingdom the common characteristics will decreases.

All options are incorrect except option a species because if we consider the ascending order of taxonomic categories then we get that species has less similar characters than the genus it is written in ncert

The correct hierarchy is: Kingdom>Phylum>Class>Order>Family>Genus>Species.
Kingdom is the highest taxon with least similarities in characters whereas species is the least taxon with similar morphological characters and behavior.Species is followed by genus by having slightly fewer similarities among it's members.
So answer is species.

As we goes down from kingdom from species in taxonomical hierarchy vegetative character incerases that's why we use reproductive character to define.

When we move upward in hierarchy , the common characters goes on decreasing.. see NCERT 11th Page no-10 2nd last line and page no-11 first paragraph.
in this question see that category which comes at top in the hierarchy. we find that division comes above all. so it will be the right answer.

So class is higher than other taxa so it has less similar characters...
