Answer:

The Five-kingdom Classification proposed by Whittaker is the most widely used classification system. According to this system, based on their cell structure, mode of nutrition and body organisation, organisms are divided into five kingdoms:

  • Kingdom Monera
  • Kingdom Protista
  • Kingdom Fungi
  • Kingdom Plantae
  • Kingdom Animalia
