  • The correct hierarchy of classification of various taxons in descending order is given by :
Kingdom → Phylum → Class → Order → Family → Genus → Species
  • The kingdom is the highest level of classification and contains the maximum number of species followed by Phylum while species being the most specific having minimum number of members.
So, the correct option is 'Phylum'.
