Dear Student

Gross character will form the basis of start of the hierarchy and fine character will form the basis of further steps of single the hierarchy.
Example:
Presence of vertebral column in human beings can be taken under vertebrat.
Presence of four limbs makes them members of Tetrapoda.
Presence of mammary glands keeps them under mammalia.

Thanks
