Expert Answer:


Earth is inhabited by a huge diversity of living organisms. It is impossible to study each and every living form separately. But studying the diversity of living organisms is possible if we arrange various kinds of organisms in an orderly and systematic manner. This is what is achieved in classification, wherein we categorise organisms into different groups based on their similarities and differences. Thus classification makes the study of the huge diversity of living organisms easy and also helps us in understanding the interrelationships among different groups of organisms. It also helps us in understanding the process of evolution.
