Expert Answer:

Dear student,
Algae is included in kingdom Plantae and not Animalia. It shows all features of kingdom Plantae like eukaryotic cells with cell walls, autotrophic mode of nutrition, presence of photosynthetic pigments and alternation of generation. Hence it is included under kingdom Plantae.
